More About Stacie May

Over the years she has been in many bands and singing groups, has shared her music in churches for 45 years, and given piano lessons as well. Ragtime, jazz, tunes from the 1900s-1980s or serious classical piano, she plays them all. You will enjoy listening to her caress the keys and tickle the ivories.

 

People at outdoor events are at the mercy of the elements. Most take their chances and come prepared. But a responsible outdoor event operator on Colorado’s eastern plains needs to help protect them from the worst. And weather or not, if there is what disaster planners call a mass casualty incident, what then?

Assume the worst. Think eastern plains rain, hail with a chance of a tornado. Also assume the best: the authority and expertise of Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO). Arapahoe County Fairgrounds weather keeps commanders and officers well trained.

Under the proposed USR, May Farms will:

1. Set incident action, event traffic and local traffic plans with ACSO beginning 120 days before each event. ASCO has final say.

What’s in an Incident Action Plan? As a start siting and staffing of command posts, infrastructure for telecom, weather monitoring, electronics. Routing and traffic control. Even county-ordered use of public schools as shelter. For comparison, Mesa County even requires a heli-pad for Country Jam.

2. Hold producer to contractual obligations for extra, incident-related staffing. Plan with producer and ASCO a Twitter-based alert system for attendees.

3. Help provide food, water, fuel, shelter resources during any on-site incident.

4. Promptly reimburse to the county the cost for extra staffing calculated on proper wage scales.

5. Long range, invest in structures with dual use as event-related equipment storage and emergency shelter. Sunflower Pavilion and other May Farms structures can protect many but not all.

 

Any outdoor event like weddings, fun runs, concerts and pumpkin launches all generate their own sound. But when does sound become noise? When does noise become a public nuisance? And how can that nuisance be mitigated? Those are the questions May Farms Event Center is answering.

Defining noise is hard but, to paraphrase the Supreme Court, you know it when you hear it. The physics of sound does not help. And in an outdoor setting volume, settings like bass and treble, topography and weather complicate matters. Besides, noise is subjective. What is noisy to one is melodious to another.

Measuring noise is easier. Decibels (dbA) can be counted and compared. Talking in a normal tone of voice produces 45 db(A). A louder voice can reach 50 db(A). Eighteen wheelers down the interstate generate 60 db(A) measured 100 feet away. Discover this yourself by downloading a free decibel meter on your mobile phone application.

So how does a responsible event venue like May Farms mitigate the nuisance of noise?

  1. Set hours of operations that respects the peace of country living: 10:00 p.m. weekdays, Friday and Saturday midnight and Sunday 9 p.m.
  2. Set decibel levels at the property line that are within state standards: 60 db(A) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.; 55 db(A) between 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
  3. Restrict the event producer’s sound level by an enforceable contract and monitor it in coordination with TCH.
  4. Inform neighbors what to expect, eve neighbors who live miles away.

Some will always be bothered by any noise that is not part of their country living or music to their liking. Others will tolerate it. A few may even enjoy it. But managing events by balancing the generation of sound with the reception and tolerance of sound is the objective of May Farms’ USR.
