Wheaton residents interested in having a block party must submit a Block Party Application to receive a permit from the Public Works Department. There is no fee for this permit.
How to Apply
First, you must notify all residents living on the block in writing of the date and time of the block party. As part of the application, the contact person shall submit a sheet containing the signatures of at least sixty percent (60%) of the residents within the blocked area. Complete the Online Block Party Application and upload the signatures (file/image) or drop it off at the City of Wheaton Public Works Department office.
A block party is defined as the closing of one (1) block or portion thereof of a public street, from one cross street to the next closest cross street, for no longer than an eight (8) hour period, that is entirely residential for community activities sponsored by the residents of such block.
Applications are available from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Public Works Department, 821 West Liberty Drive.
