To use the public roadway for a block party or to temporarily close the street requires approval from the City Clerk or designee. Closures affecting businesses, traffic flow, safety, etc. may require City Council approval. Tents, bounce houses, petting zoos, pony rides, obstacle courses, etc. may require an additional Temporary Use Permit (TUP).
All requests for block parties / street closures are required to be in writing on the form provided below. Requests should be submitted at least 14 days prior to the date of the event, but 21 days is best.
Please fill out the form completely and legibly; please answer all the questions. Please be as detailed as possible with the streets you're requesting to close. Attaching a map is always a great idea! If the City Clerk has questions, she will contact you.
Email the completed form, and any additional information, to the City Clerk. You can also drop it off or mail it to City Hall, 506 Main St, Belton MO 64012.
