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.

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.

As noted last year, 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.

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