Any business with a physical location within the City limits must secure a business registration prior to conducting any business activity. A business is any profession, trade, or occupation whether carried on for profit or not. This includes home based businesses (offices, contractors, consultants), churches, and temporary special events. A business registration is valid for one year and must be renewed annually.
Most building projects require application reviews to be completed before a permit is issued. This process helps ensure compliance with various codes, ordinances and standards. Submit permit applications through the City of Las Cruces Permit Portal.
