Why are Special Event Permits needed?

The purpose of the Special Events Ordinance is to ensure that special events do not endanger public health or safety and to permit the City to understand and prepare for known collateral and secondary effects of special events in the community. The permitting process is not intended to control or regulate special events based on their content, the nature or type of speech involved, or any speaker's viewpoint.
