Shared City Streets Program


The City of Takoma Park allows street closures as a way to provide space for neighbors to come together and strengthen the community.  Residential street closures for recreational activities or events require a permit.

You can apply to close your street using this link.  You will need to comply with street closure guidelines, which are available for download here.

Note: Permit applicants will be required to verify the manner in which they will be notifying the neighborhoods.  Applicants must notify all neighbors on the block by flyer or electronic means, and post signs at either end of the street at least (1) week in advance. Online petitions are no longer required. For County and State road closures, there is a different process.

Questions or Concerns? 
Please contact Irma Nalvarte at or 301-891-7214

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all street closure events are limited by public health restrictions as mandated by Montgomery County and state safety guidelines. The guidelines can found on our Covid_19 visit:  Montgomery County Government COVID-19 Information Portal

Public Works:
Once the permit is approved, you can contact the Public Works   administrative office between the office hours of 8:30 am to 5 pm to make arrangements to pick up barricades  at 31 Oswego Avenue.
