Outside Events in Bangor - Planners Beware - Approvers Notice
Well, in the times of more and more Government control, anyone planning an outdoor event in Bangor on City property should beware. The City of Bangor has established a new policy regarding permits for an "event".
I am not aware of their Municipal defiinition of an event but I presume it is general and has something to do with a gathering. Here is the Bangor Daily News link to the article. Believe me, I do not believe the BDN is a total authority. I do, however, believe if I was thinking about having and publishing an event in a public area or park in Bangor, after this news article, I would be checking with Parks and Rec to see about the rules and if what I was doing fell under this regulation.
What hurts is the application fee and also the fact this is another layer of regulation.
