Special Event Permit

Block parties are allowed in Rosemount on low-volume resident streets, dead-end streets, or cul-de-sacs. No thoroughfares or collector streets may be used. There are several block parties in the City each year.

To hold a special event, a resident or group of residents must fill out a special event application and file it with the City Clerk. Applications must be turned in at least five business days in advance of the party. If the special event is approved, barricades will be delivered if requested to the applicant’s address and should be returned to the same location for pick up following the event.
