With the increased exposure of Glen Arbor Township and Leelanau Peninsula, numerous organizations have developed interest in sponsoring Special Events within the area. The events which are well received by members of the targeted event audience have the potential of conflicting with routine activities normally occurring during the tourist season in the Glen Arbor area.
A special event shall be defined as any event that involves closure, crossing, or use of any public highway within the Township as part of the event. Not included, are commercial activities such as Sidewalk sales coordinated within the community by the Chamber of Commerce.
