Comment (by pbiron):

 As I mentioned in the devchat yesterday, searching for "Gardner, CO" gives
 events in Kansas City, MO...which is almost 700 miles away.  Looking into
 the `community-events-location` meta_key, I see that the lat/lng stored is
 for KC, MO, which explains why it showing event for KC, MO.

 However, if [[https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2823#comment:1|Otto's
 comment]] is correct that place name searches are using `geonames.org`
 data then that is odd, because
 http://www.geonames.org/search.html?q=gardner%2C+co&country= correctly
 finds Gardner, CO (with the correct lat/lng) as the 1st result.
