Businesses located within the city limits are required to obtain zoning clearance. A Zoning Compliance Certificate is required to ensure that the business is being conducted in a properly zoned area. At the time of application, the license staff will route the zoning information to the Planning Division. The planning staff will then notify the License Division of the approval or denial within 5 business days.
No license may be issued until the Zoning Administrator has provided verification that the business is in an approved zone.
