We would like to run our business as we have for the last nine years. Having music on weekends has been very popular for our local rafting guests and the surrounding neighborhood. Many locals book their trip with the plan to stay afterwards and listen to music. These musical performances are free and open to the public which the local neighborhoods love. We are trying to improve the designated blight zone in this area and the residents applaud those efforts. We would like to have music on Friday 6-10, Saturday 5-9 and Sunday 3-7pm. With 12.77 acres of commercial land it is easy to conform to the noise code.

Reviewing Agency Comments/Status
Email the Special Events Coordinator regarding this application.
Status: ApprovedComments: The noted use of buildings and structures on the property for many years does not mean such use and occupancy complies with county land use and building codes, nor does proposed continued such operation comply with these codes. The house was converted to a commercial office/bathrooms without a required change of occupancy building permit or alteration to meet building codes, including handicap accessibility. No planning or building application has yet been filed to resolve this noncompliance, although many inquiries, meetings and discussions on how to achieve compliance have happened over six years.
Since the home does not meet the requirements of a commercial building and commercial bathroom, it may not be used as part of this Special Event. At least one of the portapotties provided for sanitation purpose must be handicap accessible.
Stages/platforms should be designed for a minimum 100 psf live load and a 131 mph Ultimate Design Wind Speed.
Tents require review and approval by Poudre Fire Authority.
Approval may not be granted for future Special Events if applicants fail to obtain building permits as needed.
