Please remember: No block parties

4th of July block parties, although a Piedmont tradition, will not be permitted this year due to the Alameda County Health Officer’s Shelter in Place orders, which prohibit public or private gathering of individuals who are not members of the same household or social bubble. 

The City will not issue any street closure permits for 4th of July activities, and residents must not block their own street for festivities of any kind.
