(a) The Department may deny a permit for a community event if additional information required by the Department to make the application complete is not timely submitted.
(b) The Department may deny a permit for a community event based upon any of the grounds stated in section 21.108 or if it determines one of the following conditions may occur, which the applicant is unable to mitigate against:
(1) The event will cause an increase in the amount of pedestrian and/or vehicular traffic that will likely present a threat to public health or safety to event attendees, participants, area residents or others in the vicinity where the event is proposed to occur.
(2) The event will require diverting a significant number of law enforcement personnel from their normal duties that will likely prevent reasonable law enforcement protection to the community in the area where the event is proposed.
