Under the City’s Zoning Code, some projects may require review by the City’s Plan Commission. If your project meets one of these requirements, the Director of Planning & Development can guide you through the development procedures.
City Inspections & Occupancy Permit
Before you can occupy your business space, the City requires that a commercial exterior inspection be completed. To inquire about scheduling an inspection you can call the Public Works Department at (314) 524-5191. The space must pass inspection in order to obtain a Commercial Occupancy Permit.
A Business License is required before you can operate most businesses in Ferguson. To obtain your Business License you will need to bring your approved Commercial Occupancy Permit and your Missouri Business Sales Tax I.D. number, along with the Business License Application to City Hall. The City Collector will then issue a Business License. The Collector can be reached at (314) 524-5254.
