When determining whether or not a Mass Gathering Permit is needed, you need to ask yourself these THREE questions. If you can answer YES to any of them, then a MASS GATHERING PERMIT is legally needed.
- Is the event/gathering temporary with an estimated attendance of 600 or more people attending it outside and simultaneously?
- Will the event/gathering cause a street, public way, road, highway, boulevard, parkway, lane, alley, service road, viaduct, bridge, sidewalk, or other public rights-of-way to be temporarily closed or inaccessible?
- Are you responsible for the operation of an event/gathering or are you the property owner of such as stated in the above criteria?
The following …LEGISLATION… speaks as to the legality of the permits. If a permit is necessary, please pay particular attention to the form as you fill it out. Be sure to read the information in the links where indicated.
