A.   Application Procedure:
Those wishing to conduct commercial filming activities within the Village of Woodridge should first contact Community Development department staff to discuss permitting needs.
After this discussion, a completed permit application should be submitted along with all required documents for Village review no later than twenty one (21) days prior to the proposed commencement of filming. A non-refundable one hundred dollar ($100.00) application fee should also be submitted at this time. Applications made less than twenty one (21) days from the proposed commencement of filming are considered "late" and carry an additional fifty dollar ($50.00) fee. Applications made closer to the proposed start date carry a greater risk of rejection.
Village staff will review the submitted application, and will either approve the application, reject the application, or return the application with requests for further details.
   B.   Application Materials: All applications for a commercial filming permit shall at the minimum be accompanied by:
      1.   Completed application form.
      2.   Production parking plan (including number, type, and proposed location of vehicles to be parked and whether those vehicles would be stored overnight).
      3.   Details of proposed construction, alterations, and modifications to any structures.
      4.   Traffic control plan (if requesting full or partial street closure).
      5.   Hold Harmless agreement.
      6.   Property Owner Letter of Approval.
      7.   Certificate of Insurance (one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) per occurrence, two million dollars ($2,000,000.00) aggregate, Village of Woodridge, its officials, employees, agents and volunteers as an additional insured on a primary and non-contributory basis).
      8.   A check made payable to the Village of Woodridge for the one hundred dollar ($100.00) application fee (one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) if application is late).
      9.   Security Deposit: Depending on the size and scope of the event, the Village Administrator reserves the right to require the permit applicant to furnish a refundable security deposit. The amount of the deposit, if required, will be determined on a case-by- case basis.
Other materials may be requested at the discretion of the Village Administrator or their designee. (Ord. 2021-32, 10-21-2021)
