City staff is available to answer your questions by telephone Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Staff recommends a careful check of the location's zoning, parking, permitted uses, and Building and Safety records before you buy or lease the property to establish a business. This assures you that the business is allowed in the zone, that development requirements are met, and that no known code violations exist on the property preventing investment of time and money in a site which will not meet your needs.
