Signatures from all your neighbours in the block party zone are required on the permit to show support for the event, whether or not they plan to attend.
The permit must be submitted at least 2 weeks before the event. The permit includes pick up and delivery of road barriers. Alcohol consumption is not permitted on city roads or public property.
