Palo Alto rules/regulations on posting flyers

Original post made by LivetoDance, another community, on Jun 8, 2010

Hello all,

I want to market a FREE family event (hosted by a non prof) that will be taking place in one of the Palo Alto parks, but want to know more about rules/regulations regarding the posting of flyers. Is it okay to for example:

Post flyers on poles/trees, cars, leave them at homes?

More than anything I want to get the word out to the surrounding community/neighbors so that they are aware of our event and are also invited.

Any comments, suggestions, advice are welcome.

First of all if you want to use a City Park for a party you better clear it with the City's Community Services Department and make a reservation. There are rules and regulations.

If you want to get word out to your community I suggest you use your neighborhoods e-mail tree.

I have all of the permits and insurance requirements. Went through both the city and PAPD.

E-mail tree? I must be slow. I don't get it.

Every neighborhood in the City has an e-mail tree. Messages are passed from the City and PAN to the individual heading up the tree and they pass it on to their neighborhood. If you live in PA it really helps to be part of your neighborhood e-mail tree.
