Status: ApprovedComments: The Health Department has reviewed this special event application and, as noted in our 2022 comments, we have no significant concerns as this is a drive-through event where attendees will be onsite for a short amount of time and no one will exit vehicles. It is acknowledged that no food or beverage will be provided during this event. If there are dry days during the duration of this event, we recommend light wetting of dirt roads onsite to control dust. The event website states that sponsors received a VIP party, but does not list additional details. We recommend contacting the Planning Department to verify if there are any requirements for sponsor VIP party.
