Street Activity Permit Information

The Street Activity Permit Office (SAPO) is charged with the administration of the permit system for street festivals, block parties, religious events, clean-ups, greenmarkets, promotional events and other events that take place on the City's streets and sidewalks. 
SAPO now accepts online permit applications from the public available at E-Apply.

SAPO shall notify the community board in which the proposed event will take place that the application is available for agency review and comment on the CEMS database.

The SAPO rules establish procedures for the processing of applications by Community Boards.  If you have any questions call the Bronx Community Board No. 8 at 718-884-3959.

Bronx Community Board No. 8 has adopted guidelines for the review and approval of street activity permits.  Applicants can become familiar with these guidelines prior to attending a committee of the Board.  See Guidelines for Street Activity Permit Applications
