Permits & Notifications

Tent Permit and Tent Notification requirements are changing constantly. The information listed below is subject to change and with information always changing, the information might be incorrect, but our team works hard to do our best to keep the information as accurate as possible.

Indicated next to each town/township, it will list if either a residential and/or commercial property requires a tent permit and/or notification. If we have spoken with a representative at the town/township, then below will indicate if a customer is able to obtain the permit/notification.
