SLO County needs a temporary events ordinance



Jono Kinkade did suburb reporting related to SLO County deficiencies in addressing temporary events in "Trouble on the wine trail" (Oct. 8). The position to which county supervisors retreat, that the matter is too complex for a single solution, doesn't seem valid in that other counties have the same issues along with functional ordinances. In addition to revising the existing events ordinances, it might make sense to establish a temporary events permit for simplified processing, applicable to actual temporary events rather than venues that function as an event facility. In the interim, the long ignored existing ordinance requirement for events to have permits should be enforced—for safety.
