Comments: 8/4/20 - E-mail sent to applicant. Application is missing a lot of information, but portion of site plan attached shows several buildings and a "grand"(stand?). There are no permits of record for a grandstand or any buildings approved for assembly uses. Permits will be needed for a grandstand, temporary structures or converting barns/sheds/utility buildings to assembly uses.

8/5/20 - Additional info posted, and talked by phone to applicant. I was told only staff will go into the small sheds, not the public. "Grandstand" to be temporary bleachers rented from Centennial Livestock Auctions. At least one portapotty must be handicap accessible. On this basis, I approve.
