An event that is localized, and intended for the immediate residents residing on the impacted streets, is considered a “neighborhood event.” Advertising for a neighborhood event is usually limited to flyers distributed in the neighborhood of the event, newsletter notice, posters, email or announcement at a Neighborhood Association meeting.
Note: Mass advertising that uses the internet, Facebook, websites, etc. may disqualify an event as a neighborhood event.
Download the local street/block closure and noise waiver request and submit the completed application to:
Department of Economic Development and Planning
Office of the Director
316 N Capitol Avenue
Lansing, MI 48933
The department must receive the completed request at least 3 weeks before the event takes place. Submitted applications do not guarantee your event will be approved.
All other events designed to bring an audience or participation that extends beyond the residents of a particular neighborhood will most likely be handled through the broader Special Event Permit Application (PDF) (SEPA) process.
