Every year numerous Street Events are held throughout the City of Saint John. These events – often organized by community groups and volunteers – greatly enrich our cultural lives and our communities. The City of Saint John recognizes special events as an important part of the City’s quality of life. Special events enhance tourism, culture, recreation and education as well as providing an economic benefit to businesses in Saint John.
On May 07, 2012 Common Council approved amendments to the Traffic By-law, authorizing the Chief of Police (or delegate) to consider applications for the hosting of Street Events, and for necessary street closures. Regulations (Schedule ‘S’) to the By-law amendment details the conditions considered in approving the Street Event and necessary street closures. The Regulations are intended to provide event organizers with information about what is required to obtain approval for Street Events and the associated temporary traffic rerouting.
