How do I obtain a business registration? What other permits do I need to establish my business?

Business Registrations are issued by the Clerk’s office; however, their office requires a Land Use/Site & Development Permit as part of their process.  This ensures that the proposed business location is properly zoned for commercial, or is an allowable home occupational use.  It also regulates that minimum commercial design standards will be met. Note that some properties may require a Commercial Site Plan Review before the Planning Commission prior to the issuance of a Land Use/Site Development Permit.  It is recommended that you meet with the Planning Director to discuss your business plans.
