When is a special event permit required?
A special event permit is required when the City Manager or his/her designee believes that the intended activity has the potential of becoming a threat to public safety, constitute a danger to the normal flow of traffic, or constitute a potential disturbance of the peace of persons outside the premises where the event or activity is located. This does not include family events at your home that does not impact the rest of the community. The purpose of a special event permit is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the city's citizens and to ensure the proper coordination of city, county and other agencies services when necessary.

Special event permit means written, signed authorization by the city to hold the event. For further information, please see Article II -Special Event Regulations under the City’s codes and ordinances.
