Special Events Permits
Overview

The Office of the City Manager Special Events permitting process provides for permit-issuance in order to regulate special events in or upon a street, alley, public park, public buildings and/or sidewalks in the interest of public health, safety and welfare. These events may include—but are not limited to—fundraisers, walk/runs, parades, block-parties, rallies, outdoor markets, street-closures, entertainment, and sound-amplification.  Permits are also needed when the sale or exchange of alcohol for goods or services is expected. 

The obligation of complying with special event requirements is placed solely upon the permittee. No provision is intended to impose any duty upon the city, or any of its officers, employees or agents. The full ordinance on non-alcohol SEP's can be found HERE.

3 Types of Alcohol Permits:

attendees are paying for the alcohol now or there is an expectation 
of financial gain the the future by providing the "free" alcohol. 
Can be obtained by a citizen or organization.
