The Board of Supervisors by Resolution has established procedures and requirements for conducting Special Events that take place on County Property including county-maintained roads, parks, and buildings.
The intent of this policy is to foster and support planned usage while ensuring maximum safety for all parties. This policy is also aimed at minimizing disruption and inconvenience to local residents, motorized vehicle traffic, and the provision of day-to-day governmental services.
