The City is in the process of updating the special event application permit process.

As we review the process, please note the following:
1. Unless the date of the event is on or before December 31, 2017, applications will not be processed.
2. Applications for events after January 1, 2018 will be accepted by City staff, but not processed until the new ordinance is in effect.
3. If there is a compelling reason to have a special events permit processed before the date, a request to do so maybe taken to City Council for approval.
4. Dates for use of City property will be kept on hold for the event on a first come, first served basis, even though the remainder of the permit will not be processed.
5. Permits for events on or after January 1, 2018 will be subject to the new ordinance criteria.
6. Commencement of permit processing will occur following adoption of the revised ordinance, based on the date the applications is received and the date of the event.

Thank you for your understanding of our review process and please let us know if you have any questions.

Completed Special Event Permits take 30 days to process with all necessary attachments and without errors. Your permit will go to the next City Council Meeting after the 30 days. Please take this into consideration when planning your event.
