Most special events require a City permit. If you are planning a special event, you must submit a written proposal to the Special Operations Sergeant at least 30 days prior to the event. The Special Operations Sergeant will distribute the proposal to Special Events Team members for review and authorization. You can apply for a permit online by clicking on the link below. There you can download a permit application form. The application can be filled out online and then printed out and mailed or brought to the Police Department (the application must be signed). If your event is authorized, and your application approved, you will be required to pay the applicable permit fees prior to your event. Your permit will not be issued until the fees have been collected.
Activities that may require permits are as follows: private parties, an event at a public park, any street closure, any film production shoot, any erected tent with more than 400 square feet, any encroachment on City property, any noise source not covered by the Municipal Code, and/or any planned event that the City's Risk Manager believes creates City liability.
