SANTA BARBARA, CA – 7/13/2015
The City has developed online instructional guides and videos to help business owners start and grow their businesses in Santa Barbara.“The online instructional guides and videos cover common questions such as understanding when City approvals are needed, how to plan tenant improvements and navigate the planning and permitting process, how to get a business license, best practices to conserve water, and permits for events and special needs. Since leasing or purchasing a new space is a critical decision for entrepreneurs, tips are provided for business owners to review before signing a lease and committing to unanticipated costs.
The City is working with business organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Economic Ventures, and the Small Business Development Center to share the new City resources with entrepreneurs as they start and grow their bus inesses. The project was suggested by entrepreneurs at one of the Mayor’s quarterly outreach meetings to help the City improve its service to local businesses.
