Special Event Application


All reservations with 51 or more people for special events (festivals, parades, weddings, etc.) that desire to take place on public property (streets, parks, etc.) are initiated within the Community Services department. We have created a user-friendly process to facilitate a successful event.  This guide is intended to provide you with the information needed to complete a permit application.
