The City of Keller strives to work with residents, businesses, area organizations, schools, churches, and other entities in the provision of special events that are well-coordinated, safe, and enjoyable. In doing so, the City has established a Special Event Review Team (SPERT) consisting of representatives from the departments of Police, Fire, Parks and Recreation, Community Development, Public Works, and Administration.
The SPERT group is responsible for accepting applications, reviewing proposals, and working with applicants to ensure that the process is as efficient as possible and the events are in keeping with City guidelines and policies. The SPERT group and the City are committed to achieving a process that is responsive to the applicant, provides accurate and clear information, and encourages community events that are safe, enjoyable and well-coordinated. The City welcomes input and suggestions that may further improve this process and encourages applicants to submit a comment form included as part of the application.
City staff are available to assist and work with the applicant during any part of the application process. The process is intended to be convenient to the applicant and involves several easy steps:
- Step 1 -
- Step 2 - Submit the completed application to Community Development in person at Keller Town Hall, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by fax at 817-743-4123.
- Step 3 - The SPERT group will review the application, request follow-up information, if necessary, consider the application including costs, if any, and provide a response to the applicant, in most cases, no later than 20 working days from receipt. Approvals are forwarded immediately and, in some cases, following receipt of an insurance certificate, if applicable.
