Special Events Permits in 5 Easy Steps

Special Event Permits in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Register & Apply
    Submit an online application no later than 60 days out for public property/ 30 days for private commercial property or a $250 late fee will apply.  Applications less than 14 days out will not be accepted.
  2. Application Fee
    Pay the $250 application fee to register the permit request. If applicant is a non-profit, submit the fee waiver requirements (fee waiver letter 501c3, 990, tax exempt.)
  3. Site Plan/Route
    Submit a detailed site plan (CAD preferred), drawn to scale showing all event elements, dimensions and area features. This determines City staffing & services such as Police, Fire &        Sanitation and any City permits needed like building, electrical, temporary occupant load and road closures.
  4. Community Approval
    Events must provide signature approvals from the affected properties and/or come before publicly noticed monthly community review meetings
  5. Final requirements
    14 days prior to load-in, all essential requirements are due. This includes insurance, indemnity, permit fee, security deposit and any event specific requirements, as determined in Step 3. If past this deadline, a late submittal fee will apply.
