Facility Permit Information

Reservations for the Jupiter Civic Center, Old Town Hall AND Community Center are subject to a permit review and approval process.
A permit is a “request” to use a facility and does not confirm a reservation. Submitting a permit does NOT automatically confirm your reservation. Please submit permits from a computer as our software is not currently compatible with smartphones.
