The information on this page provides you with an overview of the Parks and Leisure Services (PALS) Facility User Permit process and guidance in the filing of a Facility Use Permit application. You can download the permit here:
The Facility Use Permit is required to rent or utilize a PALS facility or space (i.e. pavilion, room, field, etc.). Please note that the opportunity to host an event or function in the City of Lauderhill is a privilege and not a right. All Facility Use Permits must be submitted a minimum of 14 days in advance of the event (NOTE: There is a longer time period for Special Events...see below). Your cooperation with conforming to the City’s standards and requirements are sincerely appreciated.
Any applicant seeking to rent or utilize a PALS facility or space in the City can download the Facility Use Permit or pick one up from any City park facility. The completed permit and all of the required documents (i.e. liability insurance, vendor information, etc.) should be dropped off, faxed, e-mailed, or mailed to the City park facility you are requesting to use in your permit. If you are submitting a permit for a passive park (i.e. one without a building or staff at the facility), that permit should be submitted to our PALS Administrative Offices at the Lauderhill Golf Course (4141 NW 16th St.). It should include all applicable deposits and payments. No advertising for the proposed event should be circulated until the permit application is approved.
A Facility Use Permit is required for normal rentals of City PALS facilities or amenities. There is a separate City Special Event Application for "Special Events". A “Special Event” shall mean any meeting, activity, gathering, or group of persons having a common purpose, design or goal, upon any public or private facility, street, sidewalk, alley, park, or other place or building where the special event substantially inhibits the usual flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic or which occupies any public area or building and preempts use by the general public. A special event shall include but is not limited to a festival, carnival, concert, parade, walk, race, fund-raising sale and similar gatherings; block party, etc. In addition to the Special Event Application, applicants may need to attain additional licenses and permits such as from the state, county, or other regulatory agencies. The City of Lauderhill is not responsible if the applicant fails to obtain any and all required licenses and permits from other review agencies. In order to get more information about Special Events and that permit application, please see the Special Event Permit Procedures. You can also download the Special Event Application. The completed Special Event Application must be submitted to the City Manager’s Office no less than 90 days prior to the date of the proposed event in order to be considered for approval. Prior to submitting the Special Event Application, the individual or group submitting the application should have also submitted the PALS Facility Use Permit.
