Property Use Permit

The Board of Supervisors by Resolution has established procedures and requirements for conducting Special Events that take place on County Property including county maintained roads, parks and buildings. The intent of this policy is to foster and support planned usages while ensuring maximum safety for all parties. This policy is also aimed at minimizing disruption and inconvenience to local residents, motorized vehicle traffic and the provision of day to day governmental services.

When is a Permit Needed?
Property usage permits are required when any organized or planned event taking place on county property is sponsored by a publicly recognized organization (profit or non-profit), person, business or other entity which invites, advertises or seeks entrants in excess of 25 participants.

When is a Permit Not Needed?
As a general rule a permit is not required when family groups (weddings, reunions, including school reunions) and other similar groups, not associated with an established organization, hold an event where there are less than 100 participants. Contact Public Services at 262-1618 to determine if your planned event qualifies.
