The Village of Glenview

Special Event/Banner Permit


​Whether or not an event requires the approval of the Village Board of Trustees depends on its scope. Events that incorporate fewer than 5,000 people (including spectators and participants) will be approved administratively through the Village Manager's Office. Events larger than 5,000 people and/or events requesting use of The Glen Town Center parking decks require approval by the Board of Trustees.

Please note that special event applications MUST be submitted at least 30 days prior to the event, and at least 45 days before events with 5,000 or more participants and/or for events on The Glen Town Center parking decks.
