Play Streets: Hosting a Play Street
I want a Play Street! How can make it happen?
To get started, you'll need to complete a simple (and free!) application to obtain the permit. Before completing the application, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.
Before Submitting an Application
Before applying, talk with all the neighbors who are potentially impacted. This can be through door-to-door conversations, an email, or a flyer. We've made a sample flyer that you can use, or make your own!
Also, give some thought to how your Play Street will be set up – is it a full block or a portion? Safety for people in the street is very important to us, so we have some rules about how to barricade your street while people are playing which may inform your site plan. To see our set-up requirements, please click here.
To obtain a Play Street permit, you need to complete the following application. Please allow 30 days for review.
