Activities That Require a Special Private Property Event Permit

An event permit is required for any event, meeting, activity, or gathering held on private property in a non-residential area, where the event substantially inhibits the usual flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic on the surrounding public property, or preempts use by the general public, attracting 50 or more persons.

An event shall include but not be limited to festivals, carnivals, concerts, parades, walks, races, fundraising sales and similar gatherings, grand opening promotions, and city co-sponsored events.

Events or activities held on private property, having no impact on public property or the public as described above do not require an event permit, however, if they include a tent or any other temporarily erected structure, the proper building permit is required.

Activities on Public Property that Require a Special Event Permit

An event on public property is required to have a permit if it is and event, meeting, activity, gathering or group of persons, having a common purpose, design or goal upon any public facility, street, sidewalk, alley or park that shall attract 50 or more persons.  No more than one special event shall be permitted at any park at one time.

A special event permit is also required to perform a variety of activities or erect any structures on public property.  A list of those requirements is found in Section 94.01 of the Weston Code of Ordinances.
