Before you sign a lease, it is important to make sure the location is appropriate for your business. Some of the factors to consider are zoning, available parking, impact fees, and signage. Some questions you may want to ask are the following:
- Permitted land use:
What is the zoning for this location? Is the business use allowed within this zone? Check out the Land Use Look Up tool for more information! This tool will help you find out where a specific use is allowed within the city.
How many parking spaces are required? Will a parking study be required?
- Impact Fees:
Is the land use changing? If so, will impact fees be triggered? Find out more on impact fees here - scroll down to "Land Use."
- Home-based Businesses:
What does the Redmond Zoning Code (RZC) allow?
- Special Use, Conditional Use, Change of Use:
Are these required for my business?
