Providence special-events permitting goes digital

PROVIDENCE – The city has launched a digital special-permit system to offer “streamlined” services for easier access to necessary permits and applications for those planning special events, Mayor Jorge O. Elorza announced.

“We are leveraging technology to make it as simple as possible for event planners to get the permits they need,” the mayor said in a statement.

Providence hosts a variety of special events and public entertainment that “support the vibrancy of Providence’s neighborhoods,” the mayor’s office said.

The digital permit system can be accessed on the Viewpoint platform through the city’s main website.
