Filming Permits

Film & Video Taping Requirements

Applicants are required to notify the City ten working days prior to expected filming and prep date(s) in order to allow sufficient time for the City to process and coordinate with the various departments involved. It is the City’s experience that this amount of time is necessary to effectively accomplish all requirements and notifications.

All required notification and signatures must be completed and submitted along with appropriate fees at least seven (7) working days in advance if filming activities will impair traffic or include special effects and/or stunts or five (5) working days in advance if filming will not impair traffic, include special effects or stunts.
