Street and/or Parking Lot Closures

• Can I close a city street or parking lot for my event?
A special event application must be submitted for approval. 

• Do I need to notify the residences or businesses in the event area of my event?
For any major event that requires the closure of the public street for four hours or more, the event organizer shall provide notice of the event application to affected businesses and residents. A Notice of Proposed Temporary Street Closure and Opportunity to Comment must be delivered to all businesses and residents within the event area 30 days prior to your event. Please email a copy of this notice to Kimberly Herbert at ksherbert@fredericksburgva.gov prior to sending out.

• Typically, new events requesting a street closure of over 4 hours will only be considered when planned as annual events.
