Step 1: Location, location, location

The first step in opening a business is deciding where you will be located.  If you will be opening a storefront business or a business with lots of customers in and out you will most likely need to be located in one of our commercial zones (C-1, C-2 or RC).  Businesses with low or no customer traffic (freelance programmer, photographer, CPA, etc.) can be operated from a home in one of our residential zones, under certain circumstances. If you are opening a business in one of the commercial zones please go to step 1-a.  If you would like to operate a business out of your home please go to step 1-b.
