Filing for municipal approvals to operate a business can be complicated. Here we detail the approval process and the required documents and certificates needed in order to obtain the required municipal approvals from the Department of Community Development for you to legally operate your business.
Types of Businesses
The Approval process required depends on the type of space you are going to operate in and if there is a construction permit associated with your business moving into the space. There are essentially three different scenarios that define which process you must follow. They are:
The business is moving into a space that involves a construction permit or Change of Use, as defined by the Uniform Construction Code (UCC).
The business is moving into a space that involves NO construction permit or DOES NOT involve a Change of Use.
