It is important that your proposed business be in a location that is zoned properly for the type of business you are intending to open. We recommend that all business owners receive a zoning clearance from the Community Development Department for the proposed location of your business prior to entering into any purchase, lease or rental agreement for the property.

To receive a zoning clearance, fill out the Zoning Clearance Form and submit it to the Community Development Department.
