Special Use Permit

On October 16, 2023, the City Commission of Shawnee passed an ordinance aimed at regulating meal operations within Downtown Shawnee. As part of this ordinance, a Special Use Permit is now required for the distribution of food to four or more people. This initiative seeks to ensure that food distribution activities within this zone comply with the city’s regulations, creating a pleasant environment for all.

The Special Use Permit applies specifically to Downtown Shawnee, an area bounded by Highland St., 7th St., Harrison St., and Kickapoo St. To obtain further details, interested parties can view the Frequently Asked Questions, which outline the application process and requirements.

It’s important to note that the Special Use Permit for Downtown Meal Operations does not incur any associated costs, underlining the City’s commitment to supporting all community members.
