Step 7: Zoning and Building Code Compliance

Determine where you will operate your business. BEFORE you buy a building, sign a lease, or purchase any equipment, contact the High Point Planning and Development Department at (336) 883-3328. Doing so will ensure that the structure you wish to use is zoned correctly and in compliance with the city’s development regulations and the NC Building Code.  For zoning questions, ask for Development Services. For Building Code questions, ask for Inspection Services. More information is available at
