About Citywide Event Coordination and Management

New York City is the backdrop for many iconic events. From special events like the visit of Pope Francis and New Year's Eve in Times Square to local community events like block parties, the Mayor's Office of Citywide Event Coordination and Management (CECM) supports all applicants as they plan their upcoming events.

CECM provides oversight on all event permitting activities; advises and assists the Mayor in the coordination of policies, procedures and operations in relation to permitting; and reviews the coordination of street activities and pedestrian plaza events.

We also work directly with other permitting agencies to ensure active communication with residents, community boards and business improvement districts, so events in our City are both safe and enjoyable for all.
