New City Policy Supports Economic Development in Industrial Areas
In another move to improve customer service and support local businesses, the City of Elk Grove recently adopted a new policy to promote economic development in Elk Grove’s industrial areas.
The new City policy was recently adopted to expedite the permitting process and reduce fees for businesses moving into Elk Grove’s industrial spaces within in the city limits. Under the new policy, businesses moving into existing industrial spaces will no longer have to obtain a new building permit, as long as the previous owner had the required permits for the space and no additional construction work is required. The policy also allows for a Certificate of Occupancy to be transferred to similar businesses in industrial areas on spaces less than 3,000 square feet. The new policy will reduce fees and ensure an efficient transition into a new space.
In most cases, a transfer of business licenses can take place in just one day. Local businesses are encouraged to take advantage of the City Building Department’s “Tenant Improvement Tuesdays” program that allows applicants to meet one-on-one with City of Elk Grove and CSD Fire staff to process building permits. For more information visit www.elkgrovecity.org/building-permits or contact Sarah Sandoval at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-478-3629.
