CoBWEB Community Calendar Policy

The purpose of the City of Berkeley website ("CoBWEB") is to provide information about City services, laws, policies, and initiatives. CoBWEB is not intended to provide a forum for debate or public exchange of information, but rather is maintained for the exclusive use of the City of Berkeley to communicate with the public.

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that the Community Calendar** is maintained as Non-Public Forum for the primary purpose of providing information about City government, services, meetings and events to the public. A secondary function is to make available information provided by outside entities.

Events are posted to the Community Calendar by authorized City of Berkeley staff in accordance with the following standards: 

  1. City of Berkeley public meetings or meetings of other governmental agencies that are related to programs and policies of the City of Berkeley;
  2. City-sponsored events;
  3. Public events that receive formal sponsorship from the Berkeley City Council;
  4. Public events that are permitted by the City of Berkeley and are expected to affect traffic, the public right of way, or access to public facilities.

Residents or organizations looking to publicize other events within the City of Berkeley can request their events be listed by the Berkeley Convention and Visitors Bureau (www.visitberkeley.org).

**The City of Berkeley Community Calendar comprises all documents, databases, log files, web pages, and other information residing within the Community Calendar subweb on any City-owned web server.
