APPLICATION FOR COMMUNITY EVENT Community Events are Created by and for Sylvan Lake Residents Only
Mission Statement: Community Events offer any resident the opportunity to seek permission to use City property for a planned activity, social interaction or gathering, or other public events intended to create or enhance a sense of place for Sylvan Lake residents consistent with the City’s long-standing uses of its public parks and Community Center. This opportunity is not, however, intended to turn any public area of the City into a public forum for non-commercial speech or solicitation activities, nor is it intended to be a forum for activities that are primarily commercial in nature.
Events are reviewed on a first-request basis. The City Manager or designee must approve all events prior to advertising or holding an event. You must be a resident to request and schedule an event, which must be open to all Sylvan Lake residents (only).
Events must be on City property (parks); events are not permitted on private property or in any public road right-of-way but may extend onto private property or the road right-of-way from an adjacent park.
Event applications will be received up to twelve (12) months before the event and must be received at least 10 days before the event.
Advertising/Newsbyte - The applicant must provide notice for advertising within 10 days of the application being approved but no less than one week prior to the event.
If approved, the event will immediately be placed on the City’s website calendar, and ONE newsbyte will be sent to residents at least 5 days prior to the event.
No signs relating to the event are permitted on the road right-of-way without express permission from the city.
Thursdays are reserved for community events at the Community Center, but a community event can be held on another day with approval if there are no conflicts.
Events are governed by the Rules and Regulations at the end of this document, which must be acknowledged by the Applicant.
No event may block the road right-of-way without specific permission, regardless of the time of year.
The City Manager or designee may approve, deny, or require changes to any aspect of the proposed community event.
