Before applying for a zoning permit please have the following information:
A survey of the property showing all parking
An application rider describing your business and the square footage you will be occupying on the property as well as the type of business and square footage of the other building occupants, if applicable
Block and lot of the property
Zone in which the property is located
When reviewing these applications the zoning officer must determine whether or not the business you wish to open is a permitted use in the location in which you plan to operate. In addition to determining the acceptability of the type of business, the township must determine the suitability of the site to support your business, in most cases this simply involves making sure there is enough on-site parking.
