Event Proposal Form
The Event Proposal is the first step in having your special event take place in the City of Monterey. This form will assist us in determining if your event is feasible and can proceed through the permit process. Complete the Special Event Proposal form first - available in PDF or online below. Once your proposal is reviewed, we will let you know which of these permit applications you need to complete. The City’s objective is to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare by ensuring that events are compatible in size and type of use with their sites; impacts on neighbors and others are managed; adequate services are provided for the events and the events do not interfere with the City’s ability to provide services to the entire community; mechanisms are available for cost recovery and use charges, while not unduly impacting the viability of events.
We do our best to contact you within five business days regarding the status of your proposal once you submit this form. City staff may reach out to you with additional questions. If your proposal is approved, then you can begin the permit process.
