Zoning Department

 
 
 

The Zoning Department regulates the use of all commercial and residential properties.  It has jurisdiction over the height, size & shape of all buildings including accessory structures.  Commercial businesses are also the responsibility of this department.

Zoning  Fees

Construction Projects   $35

Commercial Signs  $75

New Businesses  $125


           Commercial  Businesses               

In order to open a new business or to take over ownership of an existing one, a Business License must be obtained.  This application should be submitted and approved before you sign a lease or buy the property.  Zoning will review the type of business and whether it is a permitted use for that location.
 
 
If you are planning on doing any renovation to the property, either interior or exterior, you must apply for the proper building permits from the Construction Department.  If it is a food establishment, you should contact the Health Department to check their regulations and requirements.
 
Any new signage or replacement of existing signs, requires zoning approval and also a building permit.  See the sign ordinance above for what is permitted.
