Special Event Permitting
Special Event Permitting + Process Overview
Determine if your event meets the criteria for a Clerk's Office Planned Special Event Permit, per the FAQs or by emailing us to learn more. If yes, proceed to Steps 2-4. If no, continue to work with agency representatives only to obtain supplemental permits that may be necessary for your smaller event.
Download the Special Events Permit Application, fill out the Planning Checklist (page 5). For items marked "yes" contact the corresponding agency representative(s). They will assist you in determining and obtaining the supplemental permits, forms, fees, licenses, etc. that are required for activities related to their jurisdiction.
Complete the Special Event Permit Application and attach supplemental permits, authorizations, and/or exemptions, site plans and route maps, etc. to compile a substantially complete packet.
Submit the complete packet with payment at least 45 days prior to the event start date, per the application instructions (page 6).
