Hosting an Event in the Village of Granville
The Village of Granville is committed to the arts, culture and a place that offers a variety of diverse events and activities for the enjoyment of residents and visitors. On average, there are twenty-five to thirty events each year on Village public property that require Village approval and coordination. While the various events add to the overall community vitality and diversity, Village Council recognizes the need to manage the number and logistics of events to assure that each event meets health, traffic, parking and safety regulations for the visitors and minimizes the disruption for local residents and business owners. The purpose of this policy is to obtain an understanding of each event and provide the necessary information and support for event sponsors in the Village of Granville.
A no cost Village permit is required to hold events such as festivals, parades, walks, athletic events, block parties or any other event on public lands or rights-of-way (public property, streets, sidewalks, alleys or easements). Permits may also be required to hold outdoor public events on private property to ensure proper traffic flow, provide for public services and public safety.
