I searched our database and tracking spreadsheet and do not find where the application was submitted nor the fee was paid. This is separate from the online application that you completed for the Special Event Land Use Permit.

Do you know when you mailed the application and check?

I do find the supporting documentation that was submitted as attachments to the land-use application. However, the Certificate of Good Standing expired on 4/15/2020. We will a Certificate of Good Standing that is current.

Thank you.

It is correct that the fee is $100 for the liquor permit. Once we receive the fee and the updated Certificate of Good Standing, we will be able to process the application for review and approval.



NOTE: Updated Certificate of Good Standing received. Awaiting application and fee. nt

Comments: Please note that in addition to this Health Department review for the Larimer County Planning Department Special Event Application, the Event Coordinator shall also receive a Public Gatherings variance approval from the Health Department's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for COVID safety precautions for gatherings over 10 people. The EOC is a separate Health Department Division that has been activated to review COVID-specific plans.

If you have not already done so, please submit the online form for COVID Public Gathering approval, located on the following webpage as "General Gatherings - submit this form":

The same application for the JotForm is provided at this link:

Be advised that it can take up to 5 days to get the plans approved by the EOC.

=It was noted in the description that 3 mobile food vendors will be providing food at the event. No information was provided on the food vendors. Please be advised, the food vendors must all hold "2020 Colorado Retail Food licenses".

=Please ensure potable water is provided for attendees during the event. Bottled water is preferred, or sanitized beverage containers filled with treated water or drinking fountains.

=For the proposed 300 participants, 150 spectators, and unknown number of volunteers and security with the potential of up to 500 with alcohol service from 10a-6pm, a minimum of 8 portable restrooms is recommended. At least one restroom shall be of accessible design and two handwashing stations shall be provided with trash receptacles. Additional handwashing stations may be required as part of the EOC COVID public gathering plan.

Comments: This approval is contingent upon Public Health Orders in place for COVID-19 at the time of the event. If mass gatherings are not allowed, this event will not be able to move forward.

Status: Approved

Comments: The property is zoned FA1-Farming.

Kechter Rd or E CR 36 is classified as a major collector with a minimum setback of 100 feet from the right-of-way centerline. CR 5 is classified as an arterial road with a minimum setback of 110 feet from the right-of-way centerline.

The north and east half of the property is within a FEMA designated floodplain.

There are Class 4 and Class 2 wetlands mapped on the property. These areas should be avoided and best management practices used to protect them.

It appears that the proposed event will take place in developed areas on the property outside of mapped floodplain and wetlands and that setbacks for temporary structures including food vendors and temporary toilets will meet required setbacks.

Any newly disturbed areas should be re vegetated with native grass seed to prevent noxious weeds.

The event will comply with all Center for Disease and State guidelines for social distancing and maximum crowd size that are in place at the time of the event.

For future, more detailed site maps will be helpful that show the location for food vendors, temporary toilets, etc. It would also be helpful to know the number of parking spaces that exist on site in the parking areas.
