Status: Approved

Comments: 9/21/22 Update: Requested information has been provided. Approved subject to condition that no buildings or structures lacking proper permits and inspection approvals may be used as part of the Special Event. Tents may need FIre Dept. but not Building Division approval.
The sketch you submitted does not correspond to the aerial photo of the lot, which appears to show multiple buildings (not just one) and the house primarily aligned west-to-east, not north-to-south. Please provide an accurate, complete site plan for the proposed event that includes all buildings on the lot. More comments may be provided once accurate information is received.

Please provide information on the "covered areas" and "covered pavilion" you plan to use as part of the Special Event. Are these tents or buildings completely open on the sides except for roof support posts, or are there any walls or other obstructions to rapid exit in case of emergency? If event goers enter a building, it must be permitted and approved as a Special Amusement building and meet all building code requirements for Special Amusement buildings

Comments: The only concern I have is that it sounds like there will be a pretty big increase in people accessing the property from Hwy 287 for the two days. The county does not have jurisdiction for access onto Hwy 287, CDOT does, and this segment of Hwy 287 has also been annexed into the City of Loveland. I would recommend that both CDOT and the City of Loveland be included as a referral for this.

Emergency Operation Plan Notes: it was acknowledged in the emergency operations plan that the plan was adapted from the Arise Festival Plans. Please note that the Arise Festival plan is designed for an event with a higher participant count (approximately 13000 attendees a day). There are emergency medical service requirements for events with >500 participants per day. Revise your emergency operations plan to properly reflect your event of 1100 attendees per day. Ensure that the organizational chart is updated to include names and phone numbers as volunteer roles are filled per the emergency plan.
