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.

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.
