City Clerk Office
Special Event Permit
The City has an ordinance in place to provide the local community an opportunity to hold private events on public property by regulating the use of public parking lots, streets, right-of-way, and parks so they may be reasonably accessed and enjoyed by the general public, and not be usurped by commercial or special interest groups to the exclusion of the public.
The City seeks to provide this option while preserving the health, safety and welfare of the public, remaining fully consistent with the Michigan Constitution, Michigan law, City of Chelsea Charter, and other city ordinances, so as to assure the enjoyment of the public at large, all without undue financial costs to the City of Chelsea or its residents.
If you have an interest in hosting such an event, please complete the following form and return it to the City Clerk.
