Traffic has jurisdiction over all parking requests in public rights of way.

  • Pre-production Meeting

    Any large footprint exterior shoot, requiring production vehicles parked on city streets, ITC or street closure must attend the monthly Engineering meeting, held in person the last Thursday of the month, except on holidays. At this meeting you will present your shoot plan or wishlist to the Public Safety, Parking and Traffic Departments for their pre-approval of your project. A separate preproduction meeting will be held with FilmJC to present to City Council.

    Other productions may be required to attend a pre-production meeting with FilmJC at our discretion.

    Applications for an Intermediate or Minor permit must be filed at least 14 business days before your scheduled shoot.
