Comments: --Per the application there will be no alcohol and food service at the 10 hour event. Participants are expected to bring their own food. At a minimum, please ensure potable water is available for participants. The property is served by the Little Thompson Water District, therefore water could be provided from the property in a clean and sanitized food-grade beverage dispensing container (such as 5-gallon insulated water dispensers, etc.) Bottled water may also be provided. --The property is served by a septic system which is not adequately designed to serve 60 attendees, therefore the residential bathrooms shall not be used. At a minimum, 2-3 portable toilets shall be provided to support 60 attendees for 10 hours with no alcohol service. --At a minimum, please provide simple first aid kits to attend to minor scrapes and cuts. For significant injuries or other emergencies, please ensure there is an emergency action plan in place and adequate communication service (cell phones, land lines, etc.) to call emergency services. --If the area for horse riding and other activities is not vegetated, please lightly apply water with a hose the day of the activities to help control dust for the attendees and to prevent any off-site transport of dust to neighbors. --The Larimer County noise ordinance limits decibels to 55 decibels at the event property lines from 7 AM-7 PM. Music and/or participant noise from the event shall be limited to prevent noise from exceeding 55 decibels at the property lines. Since the event is over the weekend complaints regarding noise disturbances would be directed to the Sheriff's department. If not already doing so, please notify neighbors of event and provide contact information so that they may notify owners to resolve issues before contacting the sheriff.
