If you’re planning to locate your business in an existing building but want to make physical improvements to the inside and/or outside of the building, you may need to secure permits and/or design review approval first.
Contact the Building Division to determine if a Tenant Improvement Permit or other permit is required. Also contact the Planning Division to determine the level of design review required for any exterior improvements. Depending on the extent of the changes, one of the following levels of design review may apply:
- Administrative Staff review (very minor alterations only)
- Architectural Review Board Subcommittee review (minor alterations)
- Architectural Review Board review (major alterations)
It is recommended that you also contact the Public Works Department
for applicable Impact Fees. Depending on the extent of the renovation, approvals from outside agencies such as Civic County Fire Department
may also be required.
