The change will also streamline the process and set up a one-stop-shop for residents to submit their applications through DDOT’s Transportation Online Permit System (TOPS). TOPS is DDOT’s fully automated online permitting system for all public space permits. TOPS allows residents to conveniently apply for a block party permit 15 business days prior to the event date.
