Sec. 20-11-19. Annual event permit.

(a) Annual permits shall be available for a series of similar special events sponsored by the same person in the same twelve month calendar period. Except as otherwise provided in this section, annual permits shall be subject to the same rules and regulations applicable to individual permits.
(b) Applications for annual permits shall be submitted not less than ninety days before the first scheduled event of the calendar year. An annual permit application shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable permit application fee in the amount set by city council resolution. This nonrefundable fee shall cover the actual costs of processing and investigation special events applications and administering the special events permit program. The application shall also include the information required by Section 20-11-5 of this article.
(c) For sporting events, the application shall also include a list of all anticipated activities not related to game play held before, during or after each event that would otherwise be deemed a special event. The information required pursuant to Section 20-11-5 of this article, shall also be provided for all such anticipated activities. By way of example, and not limitation, such additional activities may include: pyrotechnics displays, vehicular races/demonstrations or other hazardous activities, concerts and animal exhibitions. The parks, recreation and community services director, chief of police, and/or fire chief can either prohibit, restrict or place conditions on such additional activities as provided in Sections 20-11-7 and 20-11-8 of this article, pursuant to any applicable federal, state or local law or regulation.
(d) The parks, recreation and community services director shall approve, conditionally approve, or deny an annual permit application no later than thirty calendar days after receiving the completed application in accordance with the procedures set forth in Sections 20-11-4 and 20-11-5 of this article.
(e) The permittee shall be responsible for the city’s costs in providing a level of public services (police, fire, emergency medical services and parking) necessary to ensure the health, safety and welfare of both the participants and the community. Upon approval of the annual permit, the parks, recreation and community services director shall provide the permittee with a statement of the estimated cost of providing such services for each event. The estimated cost for an initial annual permit shall be based on the applicant’s projected attendance for its first year of operations. Thereafter, the estimated cost shall be based on the city’s costs actually incurred in the previous year, modified as necessary to account for changes in the size, scope or numbers of anticipated events during the term of the permit.
(f) The permittee shall be required to comply with the cleanup requirements set forth in Section 20-11-14 of this article.
(g) The annual permit shall authorize the permittee to conduct only such event(s) as is described in the permit, and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the annual permit. It is unlawful for the permittee to willfully violate the terms and conditions of the annual permit, or for any participant with knowledge thereof, to willfully violate the terms and conditions of the annual permit. Should the holder of an annual permit desire to conduct an activity that would otherwise be deemed a special event but is not authorized by the annual permit, the permittee shall be required to obtain an individual special event permit for the unauthorized activity.
(h) The parks, recreation and community services director shall issue the annual permit after the application has been approved, the applicant has agreed in writing to comply with all of the terms and conditions of the permit, and the requirements of this article respecting indemnification, insurance, public services and cleanup deposits have been fully satisfied.
