Block Party

Great Fun & Neighborhood Safety

Block activities that involve all neighbors are a great way for neighbors to get to know each other.  In addition to the neighborhood cheer, block parties provide neighbors with the ability to recognize each other and even more importantly, recognize activity which could be considered out of the ordinary.

In 2011, the Horizon City Town Council decided it would benefit our community if citizens could make a request for a block party permit via our web site. In 2017, Mayor Mendoza expanded this by adding special events such as bike ride events, 5K runs, and other special events where brief road closures and/or detours would be needed. However, parades still require City Council approval.

Please complete the universal permission request form which can be downloaded and returned to the police department via US mail, email, or in person to apply for your special event.

If you would like to have a block party, have a special event that will impact traffic safety/flow or will create a road closure, or reserve the city parking lot, please fill out the attached form completely and return to:
