Some types of events and commercial uses require a special permit from your local government. These are the most common:
- Sale of alcohol.
- Events with large numbers of people.
- Events that need to use street or sidewalk space (e.g. for large lines).
There are a variety of other activities that might require a permit — check out our Commonly Restricted Uses Policy and check with your local government to ensure that your event doesn’t need a permit.
If your event does need a permit, you’ll need help getting one. Storefront does not handle permitting as part of our services, but our partners in certain metropolitan areas do. For more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
