Safe and Sane Fireworks Go on Sale in Palmdale June 28

The Palmdale City Council approved issuing permits for 41 nonprofit organizations to sell fireworks at its June 5, 2018 meeting. Only nonprofit organizations that have headquarters in Palmdale or have more than 50 percent of their membership residing in Palmdale and have a minimum of 20 members are eligible to apply for fireworks booths. Only one booth is allowed per organization..

The number of booths allowed is calculated at one booth per every 3,000 residents. Based upon current population estimates, a maximum of 52 booths would be allowed to be established in the year 2018, of which 41 have been filled by qualifying organizations.

Organization booths must pass an inspection by the Los Angeles County Fire Department before the City's Code Enforcement Division will issue the fireworks permit. Fireworks may be purchased by those who are age 18 and above in the City of Palmdale. Proof of age may be requested for purchase.

The City of Palmdale is the only municipality in the Antelope Valley in which “Safe and Sane” fireworks may be legally sold and discharged on private property. However, the housing community Anaverde, all areas south of the California Aqueduct, and locations in the Rancho Vista area are “no fireworks zones” and MAY NOT use any fireworks at all since they are in high risk fire areas.

The “no fireworks zone” is generally described as the area within the City of Palmdale which lies along the following lines: beginning at the intersection of Rancho Vista Boulevard and 30th Street West, areas south and west of Rancho Vista Boulevard, north to Avenue N-8; south and west of Avenue N-8 from Rancho Vista Boulevard to 55th Street West; west of 55th Street West; and south from 55th Street West to 60th Street West (Godde Hill Road).

“We’ve developed an interactive map on our website, www.cityofpalmdale.org, that allows residents to enter their address so they can see if they live in ‘no fireworks zone’ area where ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks are NOT allowed,” said Palmdale’s Communications Manager John Mlynar. “Residents may also contact our Neighborhood Services Department at 661/267-5181 and our staff will assist them.”

The City of Palmdale is urging residents to not use illegal fireworks, and administrative fines starting at $2,500 will be in effect. “Safe and Sane” fireworks may be purchased at 41 booths throughout the City. City officials are urging residents to use the fireworks under safe conditions. Educational flyers are being distributed with each purchase of fireworks. For more information, please call 661/267-5181.
