SUBCHAPTER 7

Community Board Notice

§ 3-170 Notice about street event permits. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the term “street activity permit office” means the office designated by the mayor as responsible for issuing permits for street festivals, block parties, farmers markets, commercial or promotional events and other events on city streets.

b. Notification regarding permits for street activities. The office shall inform the community board or boards that represent the area affected by the permit of any new street activity permits or changes to existing street activity permits granted by the street activity permit office. The notification shall include the type of application, event organizer, location, date or dates of event, whether the applicant has applied in the past, whether the event is private or public, information on any supporting permit agencies involved, and the contact information for one person at the office who is issuing the permit. The street activity permit office must provide notice to the community board or boards electronically or in writing, issued in an aggregated weekly report but no later than 15 days after receiving the application, provide at least 30 days for the community board to comment if the board finds it necessary, and provide the community board or boards with a copy of the approved or disapproved permit at least two weeks prior to the event, also in an aggregated weekly report where possible.
