Organized Outdoor Activities 1. Definition: Any outdoor activity that includes electrical power, amplified sound, the use of any temporary structure(s), equipment, or food is considered an organized outdoor event.


Events should be scheduled by the event organizer at least 30 days in advance. Requests received fewer than 10 days prior to an event may be denied due to lack of adequate planning time. Outdoor common areas may be scheduled for the upcoming year 364 days prior to the event.
