Organizing a Block Party in Your Neighborhood
The Fargo Police Department wants to help you make your block party a safe and successful event.
Closing Your Street
Check with your neighbors to make sure they don't object to the street being closed. The street that is closed must be barricaded at both ends to discourage vehicular traffic. Four barricades will be required.
Contact the Fargo Street Department at 241-1453 to reserve the barricades.
The barricades should be picked up prior to 3 p.m. the day of your party.
*Streets must be reopened at sunset.
Keep the Peace
Be a good neighbor and make sure your block party doesn't disturb the surrounding area. Residential neighborhoods have an expectation of peace and quiet, particularly between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Unreasonable noises are not allowed.
Please be respectful of your neighbors and clean up after your block party by disposing of any litter.
Invite an Officer
If our staffing levels allow, we would be glad to have the beat officer stop by your party to talk with you and your neighbors. The officer can talk about your neighborhood's concerns and offer crime prevention tips.
