Starting a Business

Opening a new business is exciting and requires careful planning. Make the Business Hub your first stop, where our Business Ambassador can help you navigate the City’s business processes, connect you to other agencies and direct you to business resources.

Reach out to City staff if you need more information. We are here to help.

The following guides can help you get started, no matter what type of business you plan to open.
