The City of Seaside supports a range of businesses from national brands to locally-owned businesses. If you are planning to start a new business, there are a few steps to take before opening your doors for the first time.
The Planning Division is the place to start to make sure your business is a permitted land use on a particular property. Contact the Planning Division at (831) 899-6737 or visit us at City Hall at 440 Harcourt Avenue to find out about any planning permits you may need.
After checking in with the Planning Division, and receiving any required Planning permits, the Building Division and Finance Division will be able to accept your application for a Certificate of Occupancy and Business License. To begin the Seaside Business License application visit City Hall's public counter located at 440 Harcourt Avenue. To renew the Seaside Business License, visit Avenu Insight's web portal and create an account. If you have any questions while completing the form, please contact Avenu Insights at +1 (866) 240-3665 or by email.
