Entitlement Report - COMMERCIAL Projects

New projects require a lot of background research - why not hire a licensed design professional to give you a head start with an entitlement report outlining the planning requirements and constraints applicable to your project? This is the first step we recommend - before signing a lease! This report will give you the crucial information that applies to your business and the location you are looking into - not all locations are good fits for all businesses. This is available to clients in California and Colorado only. 

What our report will include:

  • General parcel information - Assessor's parcel number, address, climate zone, etc. 

  • Agencies Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) for the parcel (i.e. local city or county) with their contact information

  • Planning Zone(s) with links to your local ordinances if they are available online

  • Zoning requirements:

    • Setbacks (and exceptions)​

    • Lot coverage and floor area limitations

    • Building height limitations

    • Allowable-by-right building types and quantities

    • Permitted uses and uses permitted by additional planning approvals

    • Parking minimums and required layouts

    • Conformance with other current planning regulations like trash enclosures, grease interceptors, and signage allowances

    • Additional agency information for projects with septic systems and water wells

  • Applicable building codes, along with additional valuable design and construction information including:

    • Whether or not the parcel is in the Wildland Urban Interface (Very High Fire Severity Zone)​

    • If there are high snow or wind structural loads that would require an engineered building

    • Additional Regulations on the parcel - Architectural Review Boards, etc.

Information that may be excluded from the report:

  • Exiting Analysis for occupant loads in existing buildings

  • ADA reports on existing buildings

  • Restroom plumbing count analysis in existing buildings

  • Easements (utility or other) that are only documented on the owner's deed and/or title report documents. We would have no way of obtaining that information unless you also send us a copy of those documents.
