Residents or homeowner's associations that plan to hold a block party must complete a Block Party Application and submit it to the City for approval no later than 30 days prior to the requested date. Please review the regulations below before submitting a Block Party Application. Submission of application does not indicate approval.
Street closures MUST be approved by the City prior to the event. The City will notify you by email if your request to close a street has been approved.
Closing of streets and public rights of way for Block Parties will be restricted to weekends and holidays between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.
Street closings for a Block Party must not create a traffic or safety problem.
Access for local traffic and emergency vehicles must be maintained at all time. Nothing can be placed in the street that cannot be removed quickly to allow emergency vehicles access to the street.
When available, cones will be dropped off for your use to close a street, based on instructions for closures provided by the City. Cones will be dropped off at the address provided on the application the Friday before your block party. Cones will be picked up at the same address on the Monday following your block party. Cones should be left in a visible location in your yard so crews will see them.
Party sponsors are responsible for notifying neighbors about the event and ensuring the area is cleaned up afterwards.
