Permits & Notifications
Events in Fishers fall into one of four tiers, based on their size, location, obstruction of traffic, and use of Fishers personnel. Since all events have their own variables, each event is evaluated individually. If you have any questions regarding which tier your event would fall under, please email Brian McLaughlin, Special Events Manager.
