Business License - Commercial Occupancy Permit

To open for business, you will need to obtain a Business License - Commercial Occupancy Permit. All other permits must be finaled out before we issue the Commercial Occupancy Permit.

Schedule Safety Check

As part of this process, please schedule the final life safety check of your space by calling the Building & Housing Department at 216-491-1461. The Assistant Fire Chief and a Building Inspector will conduct this inspection, which takes 30 minutes on average. Food operators must also provide a copy of the food license at this inspection. If everything checks out, your Commercial Occupancy Permit will be issued and you may open for business.
