Community events create a positive impact for the community, our quality of life, and for the experience of our traveling guests. Although planning an event is a process and takes time to go through the proper permitting, it is relatively straight forward and easy to do.  Supportive staff at each respective department or agency can be very helpful in guiding you through all of the necessary steps, so if you are unsure about anything – just ask!  

Bear in mind that there may be additional permits to secure, such as sign permits and releases by private land-owners. As you begin the application process, work with the respective agency / department to help figure out what permits you need to make your special event a success.
