Event Process


Visitors who wish to use FPDCC property to host sport activities, such as baseball, football, rubgy or soccer, or those who would like to hold a one time event in the FPDCC need one of two types of Special Acitivity Permits – either a Special Event Permit or Special Field Permit. Special Activity Permits are required for these requests. The application for these permits is available here in Adobe® Acrobat™ PDF format for the public to download and print.
