SPECIAL USE PARK PERMITS
A Special Use Permit is defined as an activity or event held on City of Livonia property where the event will interfere with vehicular or pedestrian traffic and is beyond regular park usage, where a higher concern exists for the protection of participants, users and/or property. Examples include:
- Any public event
- Any event with an attendance of over 250 people
- Any private event serving as a fundraiser
- Any event where items, products, or services will be sold.
To apply for a Special Use Permit, please read the information in the packet at the bottom of Livonia.gov/1569 carefully and complete the application and required attachments. The application packet includes instructions and guidelines developed to guide applicants/organizations through the process.
