The tools to connect, grow, and thrive.

Start a business

Starting a new business can be an exciting experience, but before you can open the doors and get started, there are several approvals and permits that are required. This guide will provide you with a checklist of the offices within the city that need to be consulted before you can open your business. Information has been provided regarding parking, landscaping, signage, as well as building code requirements and utilities. The name and phone number of a person within each department has also been provided, allowing for a point of contact at every level of approval.
