Frick received an approval of a conditional use permit last week from the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission that will allow for a public or private recreation area at the property. My current plans are to use the property for wedding ceremonies in the current on-site church, and after the ceremony, I would like to open up the use of the dance hall and the barn for both indoor and outdoor receptions, Frick said in the documents. The 30-acre venue was previously used for rodeo-type events, roping, equestrian events, alfalfa harvesting and raising longhorn cattle. It currently has a 20-stable barn, large gazebo, small church, outdoor corral building, indoor dance hall, bleacher seating for 3,500 people and a fenced horse track. It has at least five places to not only have the ceremony, but then have the reception indoors or outdoors. And its a pristine property, its beautiful, Frick said about the property. Frick said she doesnt plan on having more than 150-200 people on site at a time. I dont anticipate more than maximum, probably 200 people at one time. A typical wedding is between 50 and 150 people, she said. She also said she plans to bring in horses that would be used for photo shoots for wedding couples. In the future, she said there may be a day when she would lease the property to a group that may want to house a live band, since the property has the offering of a large bleacher seating area. She added that she will cease the receptions at 10 p.m.
