3 Easy Steps
Opening a new business or expanding an existing business can be confusing. The City created a Guide on Establishing or Expanding a Business (PDF) for a more detailed explanation on how to start a business. Outlined below are the 3 questions to ask yourself before starting a business:
Is the type of business permitted at that specific location?
Contact the City's Planning Division at 949-635-1800, ext. 6701 for assistance in determining.
If yes, proceed to Step 2.
If no, another location must be selected where the type of business is permitted.
Does the type of business require any special types of permits (i.e. Conditional Use Permit)?
Contact the City's Planning Division for assistance in determining permit requirements.
