Your Special Event Application Form needs to provide a complete description of all of the activities taking place at your event. The more details you are able to provide, the better able we are to assist you in safely and successfully realizing your vision for your event. The Special Events Coordinator is available to act as a strategic planning partner from the beginning of the planning process, all the way through the event, to the follow-up after the event. Submitted applications are reviewed by a number of Municipal Departments prior to approval and additional requirements, revisions, or accommodations may be needed in order for final approval; this process takes time so it is important that your application is received early.
- Recurring event applications need to be submitted 8-10 weeks prior to your event date in order to ensure sufficient time for review, revision, and approval.
- New event applications need to be submitted 10-12 weeks prior to your event date in order to ensure sufficient time for review, revision, and approval.
While every effort will be made to support event applications, those submitted with less than the required amount of time may not be approved.
Apply early, communicate often, and let us help your event be a success.
The Special Events Manual is your guide to planning an event on municipal property and outlines the application process as well as the supporting documents required.
