In making their decision the PARC will consider the impact the Tournament will have on the ability of residents to use and enjoy the Park. The PARC shall consider the following factors when making this decision:
    – Available parking spaces
    – Previously scheduled events/activities at park
    – Wear and tear on fields and park facilities
    – Whether the park can reasonably accommodate the number of people attending the event
