Certificate of Occupancy

The City ensures that all structures are safe for occupancy and use through the issuance of building and occupancy permits. Permits are required for all new construction and in most cases for building modifications, replacements, and remodeling. Even if the lease space that you have selected requires no remodeling, all new businesses in the City of Maywood must first apply for an occupancy permit.
