The City is very proud of the numerous community events that take place here in South Portland. Residents or local groups planning an event taking place on City property are required to submit an event application that needs to be completed and returned to the Clerks' office. This application would be used for Run, Walks, Cycles, Swims, Parades and any other event that would take place on City Property. This application is also used for Street Closures for Neighborhood Block Parties.
This application is reviewed by Code Enforcement, Fire, Parks, Police, Public Works and the Transportation Department. Any event that requires a street or intersection closure will need City Council authorization.
The Event group, which consists of all the departments listed above, is always willing to meet with any group interested in hosting an Event here in South Portland. Contact the Licensing Administrator if you have questions.
