Special Event Permit
A Special Event application is required when a community event is located in whole or in part on public property (or on private property within the City when it may have a direct effect upon public property, traffic flow or public health or safety, and which may require the use of special City services).
Requested dates, times, and locations are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, pending staff (and in some instances, City Council) review, recommendations and approval. Additional permits may also be required to secure the event. To view a copy of the City's Special Event Policy, please click here.
Applications can be obtained at the Community Development Department, 800 N. Field Drive, between 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The completed application must be submitted to the Department no later than ninety (90) days prior to the event. For additional information, please contact the Community Development Department at 847.234.2600.
