Apply for a Special Event Permit
Before beginning, check out the Requirements page (Terms and Conditions)to be sure you are informed about what's expected in the application process.
Applications should be submitted no later than 60 days prior to the event date. This allows for proper internal review as well as the required notification to impacted residents and/or businesses.
Apply for a Film Permit
You may request an application from the Special Events Office or print a Film Permit Application form. Film permits may be submitted within a week of production depending on the complexity of the project. The Forest Park Municipal Code specifies the guidelines for issuing Film Permits, as well as requirements. You may want to review this chapter before submitting your application.
