Use Permits: The Role of Zoning

Use Permits | Zoning | Liquor Licenses

Local zoning determines if a proposed type of business can be established at a particular location. Many cities have adopted zoning ordinances which dictate where property uses such as residential, commercial, and manufacturing may occur. Most businesses that require California Liquor Licenses such as liquor stores, restaurants, and grocery stores will be limited to commercial zones or districts. Therefore, it is imperative for a new business applicant to check the zoning ordinances carefully prior to selecting a location. In addition, many cities require a secondary screening processes such as Use Permits.

As a client of Alcoholic Beverage Consulting Service, we investigate your proposed location and determine if there are specific zoning issues or additional steps within the approval process that must be taken prior to being able to open your business. If so, we are able to assist you in navigating the approval process and, in doing so, save you time, hassle, and stress.
