Daycare Permits

Permits are required to change the use of your home or building into a Day Care.

In order to begin the process, four (4) copies of site and floor plans must be prepared showing property lines, street lines, the building on the premises, all floors, and all exterior features of the property.

After review for zoning code compliance, the applicant will be contacted and have the option to file an appeal with the BZA, located in Room 516 inside City Hall. This is required, since most type-A day care applications are for structures that are in a residentially zoned district and rarely meet the required 30- foot side yard requirement.

If the BZA grants the appeal, the applicant will continue the application process in Room 505 and a use permit will be issued upon compliance with any applicable building codes. The cost for the permit is approximately $250.
