The Special Events Office provides assistance in the coordination of events on public property such as the beach, a street, a park and in other properties requiring special zoning exemptions (i.e. hotel pool deck and roof top events) by assisting producers with guidelines and permit requirements and serving as liaison with local and regional city services and neighborhood associations.
