SPECIAL EVENTS APPLICATIONS
Special Event Permit
The City has an application and permitting process in place for special events that require the use of City property and/or City logistical and planning support (please note, this permit does not apply for facility rentals that are contained to a specific rented location, such as a Municipal Services Center meeting room, or a park shelter). This includes quarterly submission deadlines in advance of a planned event so that Staff have ample time to review all requests and manage its finite supply of equipment and staffing while balancing its support of longstanding community events with new and unique event proposals.

Park Use Permit
Park Use Permits are required for groups wishing to hold small activities on City park property that do not disrupt the typical public use of the park. Activities requiring a Park Use Permit are typically private, must be free to attend and must not be a commercial use. These activities have no concession sales or vendors, though donations to a non-profit organization are allowed to be collected. They also do not include tents or temporary structures. Park Use activities have limited event components, minimal safety concerns, and do not require preparation or clean up time by City staff. Park Use Permits are also required for all organized filming and photography activities taking place on City park property.
