Use of Lawn.  The lawn adjoining the Venture Center may only be used in conjunction with rental of the Venture Center.  Users desiring to use the lawn must specify this desire on the Rental Request Form. Use of tents, bounce houses and other such amenities must be specified in the Rental Request Form and approved by Brighton Crossings Operations Board. Setup of any such amenities on the lawn shall not occur unless and until Brighton Crossings landscape crew has marked the utility lines in the area.

Limitations on the Ongoing Use of the Venture Center.  Except as otherwise stated herein, Users shall be prohibited from renting the Venture Center on an extended or continuing basis for ongoing purposes.  Such rentals have the ongoing effect of precluding and preventing Venture Center usage by other permitted Users.  Whether a proposed use is extended or continuing shall be determined by the Brighton Crossings Manager, but shall include an analysis of whether such use is proposed for greater than a 24 hour period in any given week or for multiple regularly scheduled usage on a weekly or monthly basis.  In an attempt to further use of the Venture Center on a non-discriminatory and neutral basis and not aid one religion/political party, or prefer one religion or political party over another or provide any public funding for the same, the Venture Center shall not be permitted for any religious or political usage.

Capacity of Venture Center.  City of Brighton fire codes mandate that legal capacity of the Venture Center be limited to 277 persons.  No rentals of the facility shall be allowed for greater than 277  persons in attendance. 

BCOB Representatives.  The Brighton Crossings Operations Board of Directors may, in its discretion, condition rental of the Venture Center upon the requirement that one or more BCOB representatives be in attendance for the event for which the facility is rented.  In all such cases, the persons renting the Venture Center shall be responsible for any costs associated with attendance by the BCOB representatives. 

Categories of Venture Center Users.  Usage shall not be denied to an applicant based on race, religion, creed, gender, or philosophy.  However, usage shall be classified by the following categories:

The security deposit will be fully refundable in accordance with the terms set forth in the form of agreement for Venture Center reservations.

Fees.  Fees shall be charged in accordance with the schedule provided on the Rental Request Form.  The BCOB also reserves the right to require a deposit (the “Application Deposit”) from the user prior to granting approval to use BCOB facilities.  The Application Deposit may be retained in whole or in part to pay for BCOB costs for clean-up, repair or replacement of damaged property or equipment, or other BCOB expenses directly resulting from applicant’s use of BCOB facilities.

Rentals.  A completed Rental Request Form, Venture Center Rental Agreement, completed Applicant Waiver of Liability and Release Form, Deposit, Usage Fee, and the full Security Fee (if applicable) must be submitted to the District to constitute a complete Application for a permit to use the Venture Center. The complete application, including the Deposit, Usage Fee, and the full Security Fee (if applicable) must be received by the District at least thirty (30) days prior to the reservation date.
