Special Event Process

The process of planning a special event begins when a Special Event Permit Application is  submitted, with payment, on time. A Special Event Permit Application is required when an organized activity is conducted at any City park, building, street or other facility (on private or public property) when the public is invited or admitted with a common purpose and any one or more of the following factors exist:


  • Fee is charged or money is collected
  • Alcohol and/or food will be sold
  • City facility will be closed to general use by the public or use by the general public will be denied in part or in whole
  • Location will be used beyond its normal capacity or typical range of uses
  • Activity on a street or other public place is impacted in a manner that disrupts the normal or usual traffic patterns, regulations or controls
