As a new business owner/startup entrepreneur, what would have been helpful for you to know from City Hall on your first visit – either in person or online? Let us know and join the discussion!
The City has taken this challenge from the White House/SBA Startup in a Day initiative: Our cities and communities are committed to making it easier for every entrepreneur to start a business. We believe an entrepreneur’s time is best spent developing innovative products and services, creating jobs, and growing local economies—not navigating red tape. While fair zoning rules, licenses, and permits are important to ensuring public safety and fair competition, it should not take more than a day for an entrepreneur to identify and apply, ideally through a single online tool, for all the licenses and permits they need in order to responsibly launch a business.
