Commercial & Industrial Permits
A development permit and building permit are always required for the construction, renovation or demolition of any commercial or industrial building.
A development permit may be required when a business moves to a new location. A permit is required if a change in use occurs. For example, if you operate a clothing store (Indoor Merchandise Sales) and you are moving to location that currently occupies a hair salon (Personal Service) you would require a development permit to approve the use. However, if you operate a law office and are moving into a space that currently occupies office space, a development permit would not be required. If the proposed use is not a listed use within that district, the permit cannot be approved.
If you are doing any interior renovations, a building permit may be required.
