Special Events Division manages the application for special event permit. A special permit is required for any event held on City property, City buildings and/or private property that requires specific City or State permits or authorizations, as well as the use of City services and assets. The special permit is required to ensure the health, safety and welfare of event participants, residents and visitors, and to minimize the financial and legal risks to the Event Organizers (EO) and the City. Special events include parades, sporting events, concerts, theater productions, celebration, outings, weddings ceremonies and fairs, among others.
