Sycamore to allow multiple outdoor events

SYCAMORE – Outdoor events in Sycamore can now be held on the same day.

As the city has received an increasing number of outdoor event permit requests, the Sycamore City Council passed an ordinance this week amending the amount of outdoor special events the city will allow on any given day.

The city granted 32 outdoor special event permits in 2012.

“The frequency has grown, which is a great thing for our town, especially downtown,” said Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory.

The original ordinance limited any business or organization to one event per day, at no more than three times a year.

The amendment states that while no more than one event can take place at any time downtown, multiple outdoor events may be approved throughout the city, at the city manager’s discretion.

With multiple events allowed, the city is now seeking notification from the permit holder at least 30 days before the event. This notice will give the city staff adequate time to prepare for multiple events if the situation arises.

“One thing that we would likely do is if someone has a permit for a certain day, make sure they don’t conflict,” Gregory said. “We want to benefit all events.”
