A minimum fee of $25 may be required for all activities in which:
Deposits will be returned only if all trash, flagging, chalk, decorations, signage, and other event material is removed from the park immediately following the race. If there is damage noted on any shelters/structures then the deposit may also be held.
Park Permits for which insurance is required shall not be issued until such proof of insurance is received by Jefferson County Open Space. Certificates of Insurance must include Jefferson County Open Space as a certificate holder and as an additionally insured.
Most Coordinated Activities will not require insurance, but will require that the party scheduling the event sign a hold harmless/indemnification statement as one of the conditions to obtain a permit. For events that pose a greater risk, all participants are required to sign a hold harmless/indemnification statement and insurance may be required.
The Coordinated Activity definition provides the general guidelines used by Risk Management to determine insurance requirements: “Any activity involving a person or group of persons that has the potential to adversely impact on park values or the health, safety, or welfare of park visitors…”
Permit holders must demonstrate possession of applicable permits at all times during the permitted activity and present such permits upon the request of a Jefferson County Open Space Park Ranger or other Jefferson County official.
The Park Permit Agreement is a revocable permit and may be revoked at the discretion of a Jefferson County Open Space Park Ranger or other Jefferson County official if damage to resources or facilities is determined, if public health, safety or welfare is jeopardized, or if the permitted activity creates an unacceptable conflict among visitor use activities.
Possession of a valid permit grants non-exclusive use of the permitted site. The permittee shall ensure that the rights and privileges of other park visitors are recognized.
Coordinated activity: Any activity involving a person or group of persons that has the potential to impact park values or the health, safety, welfare or enjoyment of other park visitors, or which may otherwise require special planning/scheduling for proper management. Coordinated Activities shall conform in nature to the intended uses for Jefferson County Open Space lands. Coordinated Activities as defined here will require a Park Permit.
Each of the following definitions describes types of Coordinated Activities subject to permitting:
Jefferson County’s Planning and Zoning department has a specific regulation for special events; however, Open Space special activities are exempt from this county regulation.
The regulation reads: “Activities which have received a permit or approval for the special event by some other government entity (e.g., Open Space, Denver Mountain Parks) and which are contained entirely on the property [are exempted from this regulation].”
