Steps for Obtaining a Use Permit in California

Use Permits | California Liquor Licenses

In an effort to assist clients in obtaining a Use Permit in conjunction with their California Liquor License we follow these steps:

  • Contact the city and notify them of the proposed location to determine zoning requirements
  • If a Use Permit is required, we acquire the proper application
  • We research the fees and the expected length of time for processing (this can often be months)
  • We talk with the appropriate planning department to gather information that could prove critical in getting your permit approved in a timely manner
  • We discover if your type of business has had difficulty in the past being approved

The bottom line is that we help you to uncover any unexpected or potential hurdles and then address those challenges with the appropriate city officials on your behalf.  Our experience enables you to navigate this processes more efficiently and expeditiously.
