special use applications and permits

A Special Use Permit is defined as an activity or event held on City of Livonia property where the event will interfere with vehicular or pedestrian traffic and is beyond regular park usage, where a higher concern exists for the protection of participants, users, and/or property. 

To apply for a Special Use Permit, please read the information in the packet at the bottom of this section carefully and complete the application and required attachments. The application packet includes instructions and guidelines developed to guide applicants/organizations through the process. All applicants should familiarize themselves with the actual park policies, ordinances and laws referenced in this document. 

If you are interested in using a Park Pavilion, please reserve the pavilion as soon as you can. If your Special Use Application is not approved, the pavilion fee will be refunded. 

When is a special use application needed?

If your event meets one or more of the below conditions, a Special Use Application should be submitted at least 90 days in advance of the event date. 

Livonia Parks and Recreation will accept Special Use Applications within 90 days but reserves the right to deny any application submitted. The earlier the submission, the better the department can assist the applicant/organization with their event.    

  1. Any public event
  2. Any event with an attendance of over 250 people
  3. Any private event serving as a fundraiser
  4. Any event where items, products, or services will be sold.
  5. Run/Walk/Race
  6. Concert
  7. Fair/Festival

application information and process

To properly review an application, the City of Livonia requires adequate time to determine if the Special Use is feasible considering all logistics and details including the size and scope of the event, traffic and pedestrian safety, security, and any other related concerns. Parks and Recreation may require a meeting with the applicant/organization to discuss the application. 

Submission of the application does NOT guarantee approval. 
Do not publicize your event until approval has been confirmed.

If your application has been approved, your confirmation will be in the form of a Special Use Permit issued to the applicant. The applicant may be any member of the sponsoring organization who has been authorized by the organization to apply. The authorized applicant must be at least 18 years of age and available to work closely with the Parks and Recreation staff throughout the process. A non-profit organization must present 501c3 documentation and list City of Livonia Parks and Recreation as a sponsor in all promotional and event material.

The City of Livonia Parks and Recreation Department will conduct a review process upon receipt of the application and will make a decision to approve the event based on the following criteria:

  • Goals and objectives of the City of Livonia’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
  • Public impact on park and street access and closures.
  • Duplication of events.
  • Scheduling conflicts with other City activities (i.e. A City run Special Event, road work, etc.).
  • Park and facilities capacity (adequate support staff and resources).
  • Concurrence by other affected agencies
