SAPO Proposes an Extension for the Street Fair Moratorium

The Street Activity Permit Office (SAPO) of the Mayor’s Office of Citywide Event Coordination and Management is proposing to extend the moratorium for Street Fair applications to Calendar Year 2019. The proposed rules will authorize SAPO to deny permits to additional street fairs if the event was not held in the calendar year 2018. Events that received permits in calendar year 2018 will be eligible to receive permits again in calendar year 2019.
