Chaffee County Board of Commissioners approved a motion made by Commissioner Keith Baker to give Live Nation until July 6 to amend their application for an event permit for the Seven Peaks concert scheduled for Sept. 3-6.

The amended application would need to come into compliance with state statute regarding its relationship with a non-profit entity and into compliance with the current county public health order at the time of application.

State statute exempts non-profit entities from the standard noise limits of 55 decibels from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. and 50 decibels from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. in a residential area measured from 25 feet from a property line “for the purpose of promoting, producing, or holding cultural, entertainment, athletic, or patriotic events, including, but not limited to, concerts, music festivals, and fireworks displays.”

The current application lists no such non-profit entity.

A special Chaffee County Board of Health meeting will be held at 1 p.m. July 7 to discuss event capacity which is currently set at 5,000 people for outdoor events.

Live Nation is requesting a permit for a 20,000 person event to be held at The Meadows property owned by Buena Vistan Jed Selby.

A special meeting will be held at 9 a.m., July 14, to continue the discussion and review the amended permit request.

Public comment regarding the specific amendments in writing will be accepted until 5 p.m., July 8.

At the special meeting limited public comment regarding the specific amendment will be heard.
