Good Morning Lisa,

Your special event permit application has been approved. Please print the permit and have it available for the duration of your event.

There have been some concerns form neighbors regarding parking. Please ensure that all participants are aware that they are not to park on neighboring lawns, driveways or property. We also ask that participants are aware of mail boxes and neighboring structures as they park and depart. And lastly, we ask that cones be set up in front of neighboring properties that prefer parking does not take place in front their homes during the event.

Good luck and have fun!
