Small events are usually approved administratively, and within a few days. Larger events have a more extensive review.
Large events are first reviewed by the Special Events Committee(SEC). This is a preliminary staff review, and the Committee consists of the Parks Supervisor, the Chief of Police, the Public Works Director and a representative from the Fire Department.
After review and recommendation from the SEC, the event is then reviewed by the Community Services and Environment Commission (CSEC). They will decide final approval or denial.
