Special Notice About Block Party Permits – May 26, 2021

  • Good news: Starting on June 6, 2021, the CDOT Permit Office will resume accepting Block Party applications for events scheduled for July 5 or later in the year. This decision has been made in close consultation with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and based on guidance from the CDC.
  • We want to advise you that CDPH has informed us that they are continuing to closely monitor health metrics and the decision is subject to reversal or revision if the metrics show it is no longer safe to permit block parties.
  • While there are no capacity limits, residents applying for a block party permit must volunteer as a COVID Captain to help communicate safety protocols.
  • The COVID Captain must sign a COVID-19 safety affirmation form with the permit application that attests they will:
              o Recommend vaccinations for all who attend
              o Communicate that unvaccinated individuals, including children not eligible for the vaccine, wear masks and maintain social distancing
              o Ensure ready access to hand sanitizer throughout the block party
  • No Jumping Jacks or Bouncy Houses will be permitted.

Regrettably, the Jumping Jack Program is currently on hold as the City continues to monitor local COVID-19 data. 

Block Party Permit Application:

The Block Party Permit Application and COVID 19 Safety Affirmation Form can be filled out in person at the 19th Ward office or the online submission form at https://www.19thwardmobile.com/block-party-permit/. Your permit will be emailed to you. The Fire Department will be requested after the permit is accepted by CDOT . You will not receive confirmation of their attendance. The C.F.D. will make every attempt to honor all Block Party or Special Event requests.
