How to Open a Business in Berkley

We are so excited that you have chosen Berkley to open your business!

We are here to help you succeed! Below you will find an interactive presentation on the process to open a business in Berkley.

These steps are meant as a guide to opening your business, however, every project is different and some steps may take longer than others. Before you purchase a property or sign a lease, we encourage you to review our Land Use Matrix and Zoning Map.

You may also contact the Community Development Director or DDA Director with specific questions related to a property, scope of a project, grants or other programs, etc. (see contact information below).
