Helen Robbins-Meyer, the county’s chief administration officer, will return with a resolution within 30 days that includes the fee waiver as part of the board’s regularly scheduled COVID-19 update. During their Tuesday meeting, supervisors voted to waive permit fees for the 2021-22 fiscal year from the Department of Environmental Health and Quality, Department of Parks and Recreation, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the San Diego County Fire Authority. “Today hardworking San Diegans in the events industry can breathe a sigh of relief,” board Chairman Nathan Fletcher said. “We are happy to support these businesses and excited for the return of family-friendly events in San Diego County.”

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The county Board of Supervisors unanimously approved waiving fees for the events industry — planners, venues and vendors — as event restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic loosen, officials announced today. Updated: 9:41 PM

Laurel McFarlane, president of the San Diego Event Coalition, said Fletcher has been working with the SDEC since last year on this issue. “Events are about people — the human connections they create, the non-profit programs they support, the community awareness and traffic they generate, and most urgently, the individual people behind the scenes that rely on events to make a living,” McFarlane said. “It has often felt as if the industry, and its people, have been forgotten.” “As the restrictions on events are relaxed, the event industry deserves some financial help,” Fletcher continued.

According to the San Diego Association of Governments, the meeting and special events industry brought 2.7 million visitors and $3.5 billion in spending to San Diego in 2019. Fletcher said recently that the event industry “was dealt a tremendous economic blow by the pandemic. Unlike other sectors who were able to operate at limited capacity and bring in some revenue, they could not because of the protections around large gatherings.”
