What is the process for requesting facility use?
To request the use of facilities, you will need to submit a request for use via our online request system. Please click here for instructions.
NOTE: Events with over 100 people require special crowd manager training. Please see below for crowd manager FAQ.
A crowd manager is needed in facilities that feature entertainment by live band or recorded music generating above normal sound levels and which have a specific area designated for dancing. Schools might need a trained crowd manager on – duty when holding school dances. To be sure, discuss this with your local fire department early in the school year.
