Hosting an Event or Wedding on Private Property Gets Harder
Property owners, couples, party hosts, and wedding and event planners in Larimer County, Colorado now have more hoops to jump through to make sure their events are not interrupted. After June 1, 2017 if you’re hosting an event or wedding on private property, these new regulations will affect you, your event, and your budget.
Exceeding 40 People on Residential Property
Events and weddings on private or residential property with more than 40 in attendance require a special event permit, and only three events will be allowed per year at an address. The events on the property can’t affect the neighbors for more than 30 days in a year, overall.
How to get a Special Event Permit in Larimer County
The process to obtain permits won’t be changing much, and there is still an appeal process in place for special events in case the neighbors don’t want it in their neighborhood. Its a good idea to start this process more than 60 days before your event. You can find out here how to obtain a special event permit in Larimer county
Running Your Property as a Private Event and Wedding Venue
If you want to have more than 3 events per year, there is a review process for running your property as a business like an event venue. If you choose this route, a permit for every event will not be required.
Event or Wedding on Private Property: Further Implications
Ultimately, land owners will be responsible for the use of their property, not the event planner or their guests. And restricting private events and gatherings has impact on our community.
