Scheduling Downtown Special Events & Street Closures

Hosting events in the Downtown area requires careful consideration of the impacts of the events and requires coordination with the City to mitigate negative impacts on commerce and traffic and to ensure the safety of the attendees.  The City's Street Closure/Special Event Ordinance outlines the requirements for applicants requesting the closure of Downtown rights of way.  To apply for a permit to close a Downtown right-of-way, please click here.
