Opening a Business in Monroe

Under Construction

Thank you for your interest in opening a business in the City of Monroe! 

This page is currently under construction, but will soon be featuring guidelines and tips for opening a business in Monroe, including zoning, location, process of obtaining a Certificate of Occupancy, financial incentives and more.

Check back with us very soon, and visit our Economic Development Department for information on tax incentives, financial assistance and other resources.

In the meantime, please note that any new business or changes to a business requires a Zoning Compliance Inspection prior to obtaining a Certificate of Occupancy. 

An Zoning Compliance application needs to be filled out and submitted to the Building Department along with a letter of intent and a site plan and/or floor plan. The application fee is $100. Inspections will then be set up prior to the opening of the business. Once all inspections are complete, and corrections made, if required, a final approval has been given, a Certificate of Occupancy is issued.
