Rental Procedure:

  • A group representative must complete and submit a Facility Rental Reservation Form at least 15 days prior to the event. Rentals will be approved on a first come-first served basis, depending on availability.
  • Facility staff will review the request, and if the requested space is available, a site meeting will be held between the facility manager and the group representative no later than 5 days after the booking.
  • At the time of the site meeting, a $100 non-refundable deposit is due. Payment can be made by check, credit card or cash. The Facility Rental Policies and Procedures will be reviewed and the Facility User Agreement/Permit will be signed by both parties and issued to the group representative.
  • The day of the event after the clean-up is completed, a walk-through with a facility staff member and the representative will be conducted to ensure the facility is left in the condition it was found. The permitee will be required to pay additional fees for any damage or additional cleaning, or if the rental room is not vacated by the end of the permitted rental time.
