Is an event permit required for a block party?

Yes. A block party, defined as a gathering on a residential street which requires the closure of a street or portion of the street to vehicular traffic, typically occurs on a dead-end street, cul-de-sac, or court. In addition to the Special Event Permit Application, you must also acquire written permission from all the neighbors affected by the street closure; the form must contain the following:

  • Day, Date, and time of the planned block party
  • Description of activities
  • Name, address, and signature of all property owners and residents on the closed street
