  • Impacts use of City streets (including curb or parking lane), sidewalks, and public rights-of-way, or
  • Uses City facilities or property (i.e. city buildings, parks, and parking lots.)
    Examples of special events include:
    • Road Race, Bicycle Race, or Walk
    • Parade
    • Festival, Carnival, or Market
    • Concert
    • Automobile or Boat Show

Please endeavor to submit the application at least 45 days before the Event. There is a $25 fee for a special event permit issued for an application received 45 days or greater prior to the event.
