A Temporary Use Permit is required for any organized activity involving the use of, or having impact upon, public property, public facilities, parks, sidewalks, paths, trails, streets or other public areas or the temporary use of private property in a manner that varies from its current land use, that lies within the boundaries of the Town of Silver Plume. This application does not apply to nor will it be reviewed by any state or federal entity; this is the applicant’s responsibility.
Impact is defined as: Any closure, impedance, damage, destruction, abnormal wear and tear, interference or use of any public facility, property, roadway, trail, structure, ingress, egress or business function that causes extraordinary or unusual expense, or deters or detracts from other duties for any governmental agency within the Town of Silver Plume, Colorado.
All Event Permit applications are handled through the Town Administration Office. After the applicant completes the application and attaches any required documents, it is to be returned to the Town Administration Office. Applications are available online at www.townofsilverplume.com. They can be printed and emailed back to the Town.
Reasons that your application may be denied are:
- Agencies may not have the resources to dedicate to your event,
- Your event may be deemed as too intrusive to the community,
- Your event may be deemed as inappropriate for the community or
- Your event may be deemed to be too destructive to the community.
- Other reasons may be expressed in the denial.
Acceptance of your application should in no way be construed as final approval or confirmation of your request. You will be notified if your event requires any additional information, permits, licenses or certificates. During the initial application screening process you will be given time to provide us with all pending documents (e.g. certificate of insurance, secondary permits, etc.). All documentation must be received before a Special Event Permit will be issued.
Information from your permit application is considered public information and may be used in developing the calendar of community events or reviewed by the public under the Open Records Act.
Issuance of a Special Events Permit does not create any liability for the issuing entities outside of their normal responsibilities under Colorado Revised Statutes. It does not create a contractual agreement with you and the issuing entities to perform any duty, responsibility or to perform any function other than what is provided for under the permit. The applicant will not have any fees returned after the permit has been issued due to weather, lack of participation or any other reason.
The applicant is responsible to ensure appropriate porta-potties, trash receptacles, arrange for Fire, ambulance, or law enforcement to manage their event as needed. If the event is deemed by local officials that these needs have not been met and additional resources are called in, the event will pay for those costs.
