New Business Guide
San Anselmo provides great opportunities for starting a new business or relocating your business. The Town of San Anselmo wants to help you start a business in our Town.
There are a number of issues that you should consider before signing a lease, buying property or opening a business. This information is designed to help you understand the Town permitting process and point you in the right direction for other agency approvals. As you move forward, please remember that Town staff are available and more than happy to help guide you through the process and direct you to where you may find more information.
To help you to prepare for issues that may arise, and to improve coordination among Town departments, the Town offers a FREE pre-application project review meeting where representatives of Planning, Building, Public Works and the Ross Valley Fire Department will meet with you to discuss your proposed business and to provide you with information on codes and inspections.
Meetings are typically held Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. Appointments can be made through the Building Department--you can find the link to the application here. There is no fee for this service. You may always contact each department individually for information.
