Yampa River Commercial Operation Permits Due Next Week

New Business & Renewals Must Be Requested by Feb. 21, 2018
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-February 13, 2018-All businesses renewing their annual
commercial operation permit and for any new operation interested in applying for commercial
operations on the Yampa River must do so by February 21, 2018.
Commercial Operation Permits are being reviewed for the upcoming season. All annual operations
and requests for new business must contact the Parks & Community Services department by 5:30pm
on Wednesday, February 21, with their request.
In addition, each operator will need to submit a detailed business/operating plan for their proposed
use. Operating plans should include safety plans, daily numbers, times/areas of use, and
demonstrate understanding of commercial guidelines and city planning codes. Operators should be
prepared to discuss their plan and answer questions if necessary.
If the request is not made by Feb. 21, your 2018 permitted river operations will not be
considered. For a business that was grandfathered into the plan with specific uses, any new
proposed use needs to be approved by the Commission (i.e., SUP, angling, rafting, etc.).
The Commercial Use Guidelines from the Yampa River Management Plan (Appendix B, B-1) are
available at the following link, http://co-steamboatsprings.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/View/7426,
and should be reviewed prior to submitting a request.
On March 14, the Parks & Recreation Commission will review all commercial operations permits and
requests. All applying parties should plan to attend the Parks & Recreation meeting should the
commission have questions or need additional information.
