Town of Paradise

Business License - Building and Septic

DO I NEED TO HAVE A PHYSICAL ADDRESS BEFORE APPLYING FOR A BUSINESS LICENSE?

Before going to any public agency you should have an exact address for the proposed business. Having accurate site location is crucial for receiving the correct zoning and onsite septic information and for filing various documents and permits.  Private mailbox addresses are for mailing purposes only and cannot be used as a business address.

BUILDING CODE AND SEPTIC REQUIREMENTS/BUILDING INSPECTIONS

Cities and Counties control the way buildings are used in their jurisdictions in order to protect neighborhoods, encourage good development practices, and support property values. The Town of Paradise restricts certain business activities to buildings that have the correct structure for the activity.

You should check with the Town of Paradise Building and Onsite Septic Departments before:

  • Starting a new business
  • Remodeling an existing building
  • Constructing a new building
  • Moving into a new building

The Town of Paradise Building Department also provides information to comply with the California Building Code, as well as the California Disabled Access requirements.
