We would like to run our business as we have for the last ten 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 5-10, Saturday 5-10 and Sunday 3-7pm. With 12.77 acres of commercial land it is easy to conform to the noise code.

2. No special water requirements will be needed
3. The number of employees will remain the same as for regular operations of the business
4. 500 people max will be allowed
