Concord residents no longer need permit to hold private events


CONCORD — If you're a resident of Concord and would like to hold a party, reception or some other kind of festival at your house, you no longer need a permit to do so.

According to the Concord Monitor, the Concord City Council approved the policy to eliminate required permits for events on private residential property on Monday.

“I think that the solution proposed by the city administration finds the balance between respecting people’s First Amendment rights, their ability to enjoy their own private property, with their neighbors’ ability to enjoy their property as well,” Mayor Jim Bouley told the paper. “I think we have enough regulations within the city ordinances today to ensure that everyone can coexist properly.”

With this change, most private property and residential events will be allowed to take place without a permit; however, events will still be subject to the city’s code of ordinances - including restrictions on loud noise between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday, as well as all day on Sundays and holidays.
