Hi Folks,


I'm curious if anyone knows if organized, paid events can take place on land that is deeded for passive recreation only. Examples of the types of events I am speaking of would be athletic races, tours, and perhaps music.


Any thoughts or tips on where I could find this type of information would be greatly appreciated.

That type of question needs to be answered by your county or city government. Such regulations/policies can differ wildly. There is no "one answer fits all". Typically, you should start with the local zoning department.

If you are talking about public land- it is going to depend on what agency controls it.

Around where I live there is a lot of National Forest land...controlled by the Forest Service (https://www.fs.usda.gov).

I do know that they require permits for guided tours, and I am sure many other things.

@dontaskwhy - Very interesting. Thank you. But how can a deed, which is a legal document, vary wildly in its meaning? Isn't a deed written to avoid arbitrary interpretation and protect the land in perpetuity?

@rational1 - Thank you. Yes, this is public land that has typically been treated as conservation land. However, lately, a fair amount of private interest groups have taken an interest in it and the City doesn't appear to give the deed any consideration. It sounds like I should find out what the governing body is and start there.

The governing body whose jurisdiction it falls under, takes precedence. The city, county or state has little to no say in the matter unless it is municipal land under their jurisdiction (state, county or city park for example) and they cannot enforce regulations out of their jurisdiction unless requested by the governing body of said land.

Since you never defined what type of land you are asking about, we can only speculate.

Do you have a copy of the deed language?

@Diana - Yes, I have a copy of the deed and the deed agreement. Within the deed, the phrase, "passive recreation only" is written.<br>
