Online Services for Business Licensing

Here you can apply for or renew a business license, request zoning and building code compliance approval for your business, and learn how to request commercial utility services.

Follow these steps. NOTE: Renewing businesses should not create a new account. Multiple licenses/project/permits are allowed under the same user.
1. For existing accounts, click "New Application" and login. You may reset your password if you have forgotten it.
2. For new accounts, create a "New Account", then "New Application" and login.

Use the New Application option to apply for a license for any of the following types of businesses:

    Select Category "Inside City Business" for:
  • New Commercial (or relocation of a commercial-based business)
  • New Home-Based (or relocation of a home-based business)
  • New License-Exempt Organizations (tax-exempt, liquor stores, some banks) (or relocation of a license-exempt organization)

  • Select Category "Outside City Business" for:
  • New Outside-City (Annual)
  • Per-Job/Project (only for some outside-city contractors)
  • One-Time Event (only for some outside-city vendors)

Use the Renewal Application option to renew your business license (after December 31). Per-Job and One-Time Event Licenses should always use the New Application option.

Apply for commercial utility services here after completing the license application. In some cases, utilities cannot be established in a tenant's name until the inspections are approved and business license is issued.
