A Certificate of Occupancy is required for all new businesses, a change in use, a change in business name, or a change in owner for a single space, tenant, or building. No building or structure shall be used or occupied, and no change in the existing occupancy classification of a building or structure or portion thereof shall be made until the building official has issued a certificate of occupancy.
If any portion of the commercial space is going to be altered (structural, electric, plumbing, or mechanical) a Commercial Remodel Permit is required. The Commercial Permit will include a Certificate of Occupancy once work is complete and final inspection is approved.
