Special Event at a Business ... Businesses often host a special event to promote products, attract clientele, and increase sales.

These events are considered “special events” and require a permit. Read more.

Residential Block Parties ... Now, if you are planning a special event at a private residence, such as a block party, an application for a Temporary Street Closing Permit is required to be filed with Public Works no later than 14 days prior to an event.
