Land Use Permits
If you have any permit-related needs for your business, the City is here to assist you. We handle all kinds of construction permits, from small remodels to large new buildings, and our full-service staff can efficiently guide you through the process. If you are considering a more complex development proposal, we offer free, timely pre-application meetings in which you can sit down with the full City permit review team to discuss your tentative plans and receive upfront feedback on likely processes and issues.
