What is a Special Event Permit?
A Special Event Permit (or “Temporary Site Development Permit”) is a request for an activity which temporarily intensifies the impacts (i.e. parking, traffic, noise, light and glare, etc.) of an existing permitted use or which creates a potential conflict among land uses. Typical activities requiring application for a Special Event Permit could include, but not be limited to, auctions (outdoor), farmers markets, community carwashes, open air markets and swap-meets.
