Introduction to Special Event Permitting and Operations

Special Event Permitting and Operations can be used to manage special event permits, protect event attendees, and promote special events occurring in the community.

It provides a way to collaborate in a geographic context to simplify the permitting and operations workflows. These integrated apps ensure permits are routed the correct person for approval, operation and field staff are coordinated, and necessary event information remains current. Special Event Permitting and Operations is typically implemented by planning, public works, public safety and other organizations that want to improve event permitting workflows, event health and safety planning, to protect participants and the public.

Special Event Permitting and Operations delivers a set of capabilities that help you collect and organize permit apps, develop event site maps and health and safety plans, coordinate the permit review process, share event information with the public, monitor public health and safety operations, and create after-action reports.
