Similaarly we have begun meetiing with the various
agenncies that willl likely be invvolved shouldd
the festival take place. This includes representatives from:
1) Chaffee County
5) Salida Business Alliance
a. Administration
6) Colorado State Patrol
b. Emergency Management

c. EMS

d. Road & Bridge

9) Arkansas Headwaters Recreation
g. Sherriff
2) City of Salida – all departments
10) Colorado Department of
3) Chaffee County Visitors Bureau
4) Chamber of Commerce
11) Bureau of Land Management
We have identified a number of questions, concerns and opportunities through these
discussions but nothing that seems insurmountable should the community wish to proceed
with hosting the festival.
Economic Impact –
Using data from other communities where similar events have taken place in recent years
Salida/Chaffee County can conservatively expect $4,750,000 to $9,500,000 of direct
economic impact from visitors during the festival. Of this spending the City of Salida would
capture 3% in sales tax ($142,000 - $285,000). Chaffee County would realize 2% sales tax on
those transactions or approximately $95,000 - $190,000. (Assumptions include average
spending of $50 - $100 per day with 15,000 people Thursday, 30,000 Friday, 35,000 Saturday
and 15,000 on Sunday).
This does not include the impact of spending leading up to the event and vendors providing
services to the festival organizers. It also does not include tax revenues to the City or
County related to lodging.
The draft agreement does include a requirement that AEG share data with us to help create
an economic impact study or analysis following the event.
Compensation for use of the land –
Conversations with other communities revealed a broad spectrum of compensation
expectations for use of facilities. These ranged from no payment for the venue to $1 per
ticket to be provided to a local non-profit of the community and headliner band’s choosing.
Staff recommends the City consider setting a nominal amount for use of the land $100 $500 per day and pursuing a portion of ticket sales to benefit an area non-profit.
Reimbursement for direct expenses The City and other agencies will incur direct expenses related to hosting the event. One
example of this includes the additional law enforcement that will be necessary during the
event. Not only will their salaries need to be paid, but hotel rooms will also need to be
covered. Other expenses may include costs for an urgent care tent at the festival staffed by
HRRMC, additional manpower for fire and EMS, additional equipment for emergency
responders such as Gators or Razors for patrolling the festival grounds. The lease has been
drafted to include a list of these types of expenses that would be paid by AEG. If the
Council wishes to pursue this staff will have this estimate prepared for the January 6th
Curfew –
The organizers have requested that the main stage be open with music until 11:00 p.m. on
Friday and Saturday nights. This permission can be granted by the City and the organizers
would like to see this included in the use agreement.
City staff impacts –
It will be difficult for the current city staff to take on organization of an event of this
magnitude in addition to existing duties. We suggest that the Council consider creating a
temporary position with the City to act as organizer and liaison on the community’s behalf.
At a rate of $20 - $25 per hour for approximately 400 hours in the coming months that
could come to $8,000 - $10,000. If Council supports this recommendation for additional
staff in advance of the event, would they want to ask the organizers to pay this or expect to
recoup from tax revenues?
Downtown –
Though not directly related to this agreement the Council should begin thinking about the
impact and possibilities of the event in the downtown. The organizers would like to
encourage the festival attendees to explore downtown Salida. They will do this by providing
free transportation between the festival site and downtown and by hosting bands in the
downtown among other actions.
Some questions that have come up include:
1) Curfew for outdoor amplified sound – the organizers would go as late as 2:00 a.m.
on Saturday and Sunday mornings
2) Creation of an open container area for a portion of downtown between 1st Street and
the Arkansas River
3) Allowing expanded liquor areas for bars and restaurants in the street closure area
This is a large event with many facets and this memo is meant to highlight issues specific to
the City Council and decisions that you will be faced with regarding use of the Vandaveer
Ranch and significant decisions that will come up for the downtown. Staff expects that
there will be questions we will be unable to answer at the meeting and that time will be spent
in the coming weeks conducting additional research and pre-planning in advance of a
Council decision on January 6th.
Council should discuss the draft facility use agreement and provide staff with direction on
the points listed above and other concerns that come up during discussions.
