Should Scott County allow rural farmsteads and farm wineries to become destinations for large scale weddings and events? If no, tell us why. If yes, what types of restrictions do you support to lessen impact to neighboring landowners and the community at large?

we don't have enough low cost event sites in Scott County. I think allowing event centers or wineries are a great use of the space.

If they provide on-farm parking and do not have super loud music, it should be fine. Weddings are fine. Rock concerts are not.

We should be proud of and take advantage of Scott County's farmstead, wineries and farmers. Heck, yes, those types of venues should be used to bring money to the owners and Scott County.

Yes, we should encourage it.

I support the idea of letting property owners and businesses host large-scale events, provided they have a plan for parking, mitigating traffic or disruptions to traffic, and limitations on noise late in the evening. They need to proactively work with neighbors, too, so everyone is informed of limitations, expectations and schedules. I believe the visibility generated with event visitors will help tourism and business in our local communities.

If you have enough parking so people aren't parking on the road and if you have plans for handling the waste water (residential septic systems cannot support large events (need porta-potties) and if the noise isn't too loud for too long, then it shouldn't be any problem at all. Farmer's create all kinds of their own nuisances. If you've bought the land and invest in the property, you should be able to make use of it and hosting weddings or other events periodically should be allowed.
