Events Permit is a configuration of the GeoForm application that can be used by event organizers and sponsors to submit a community or special event permit application. Capturing permit information along with the location of the event helps government agencies streamline internal review coordination activities and promote activities occurring throughout the community.

The Events Permit application provides a single destination for permit applications and is the foundation for a more comprehensive events solution in a community.
