First, if no physical changes are proposed to the building or site (such as an addition, modification, or expansion of impervious cover) you must ensure that the proposed building is a permitted use in the zoning district in which the building is located. Please visit the Table of Use document in our Code of Ordinances found here to determine uses. P=permitted use; S=permitted by Special Use Permit; Blank= not permitted; A= permitted by Administratively Issues Permit. To determine what zoning district your building is located please use our property search database found here.
After all of the zoning requirements have been met, you will need to apply for a business license through the Commissioner of Revenue.
