Does your event require a Special Event Permit?

In general, any event or activity involving the use of the following requires a special event permit:

  • Public property or facilities
  • Town Parks and/or Trails

  • Impacts on the site or surrounding area will occur (including but not limited to visual, noise, or environmental impacts)
