In order to assist with existing business expansion and the establishment of new businesses, Economic Development has produced the booklet on Dana Point Business Guide.

Beginning or expanding a business is an exciting experience. Sometimes the procedures and policies can seem overwhelming. As you have the responsibility of obtaining all the appropriate permits and licenses necessary to conduct business in Dana Point, you will discover that you have this guide and the Economic Development staff to assist in your needs. The City of Dana Point is ready to assist you through the process by upholding its customer service policy.

To help you establish a new business in town, or to expand an existing business, the guide will help lead you through the permitting process. Only those federal, state, county and local permits typically needed to do business in Dana Point are listed.

The Permit Guide section provides a detailed description and contact information for each permit. You may not need every permit listed. For detailed information on specific permits, contact the department that issues the permit. Since fees are subject to change, you should contact each respective department or agency for the most current applicable fee schedules.
