Do I need a permit? If so, which permit is necessary for my event?
A Special Event Permit is required if the event is to take place on public property owned by the City of Beaverton, the park district, or within public right-of-way (e.g. a street or sidewalk). If the event is to take place on private property, usually a Temporary Use Permit is necessary. Some events on private property may qualify for exemption. Generally, Special Event Permits and Temporary Use Permits are not required for indoor events within permanent, non-mobile structures on private property. Other City ordinances apply to indoor events within permanent, non-mobile structures.
