The Santa Clara County Special Event Permit System (SEPS) allows event sponsors to apply online for a permit for their event.   Sponsors can also learn about the event permitting process, types of events, and fees.   County residents may subscribe to receive notices when special events such as bike races or walking events are scheduled on County-operated roads.

The Encroachment Permit Application may be downloaded using the link near the bottom of this page.
