Facility Use Application Capostinsky Park

Facility Use Application (except Capostinsky Ball Park)

Interior Health Authority (IHA) approval is required to prepare food for immediate consumption at temporary locations such as festivals and other events within the District of Clearwater. This includes concession applications to serve food at Capostinsky Park Rotary Sports Park and any other venue within municipal facilities. A temporary food service premise is a short-term (14 days or less per year) operation for the preparation and / or serving of food products. If the temporary facility operates for more than 14 days it is no longer temporary and requires the same type of permit as those who hold a mobile facilities permit. There is no fee for a Temporary Food Service permit and guidelines are enclosed to assist individuals wishing to obtain a permit to operate a temporary food service. Please complete the Temporary Food Service Application and return it to the District Office at least 21 days prior to the event.
