A neighborhood Block Party is a great way for neighbors to connect!
In Monument, we value neighborhood events as a way to foster relationships and strengthen connections between community members. Block Parties are localized, self-organized events that benefit the entire Town by creating welcoming, close-knit communities.
If you are interested in hosting a neighborhood Block Party, please be aware of the following:
- You will be required to obtain the permission of your neighbors to close the street. Contacting your neighbors personally and getting their signatures will demonstrate neighborhood support for the event.
- Collector and Arterial streets are generally not eligible for closure.
- Block Party Permits are reviewed by various Town departments and outside agencies prior to a Block Party Permit being issued, therefore, we ask that your completed application be submitted no less than 14 days from the intended date of your event.
- There is a $25 block party application fee.
The Town has six banner board locations, strategically placed on major roads for high visibility. Banner boards are only available to non-profit or charitable organizations. A permit is not required. A no-fee registration form is required to be completed by the applicant. Proof of the organization’s non-profit or charitable 501(c)3 status must be provided prior to use of the banner boards.
The non-profit/charitable event must directly benefit the Town of Monument or the Tri-Lakes Region.
Use of the banner boards is on a first-come first-serve basis. For organizations holding annual events, banner boards can be 6 months in advance of the event, by completing an application.
