INBiz: Your One-Stop Source for your Business.

Permits - Administration & Fees - INBiz

Virtually every business needs some form of license or permit to operate legally. A lot depends on the nature of your business and your location.

Many permits are issued at the county and/or city level, so these will vary depending on where your business is located. The City of Greenwood is the first municipality to partner with INBiz. Users are able to access an online permit application and initiate and submit the application to the Greenwood Cityworks system. Greenwood business owners can access and manage their commercial building permits, commercial site plan permits and commercial addition permits.

New Commercial Building Permit

The City of Greenwood requires a thorough code review by city staff, under the direction of the City’s Building Commissioner, before construction of any new commercial building. Staff will review all plans to ensure compliance with State of Indiana Building Codes and all City of Greenwood Ordinances. A review is also completed simultaneously by one of our local Fire Departments to ensure compliance with all applicable fire codes.

The majority of new building projects must go through the Commercial Site Plan Permit process before a building permit may be issued. As you near completion of that process, please feel free to submit your final building plans for building permit review.

Commercial Site Development Plan

The site development plan must be prepared and certified under the direction of a professional engineer or land surveyor licensed to practice in the State of Indiana.

When a site development plan is filed with the City of Greenwood, the plan is forwarded to an outside consultant for review for compliance with Greenwood zoning and land development ordinances and standards. Once outside review is completed the plan is then scheduled to go before the Technical Review Committee for final review. The next step is to proceed to the Board of Public Works & Safety to post performance guarantees, dedicate necessary easements or rights-of-way, and execute inspection agreements as needed. Once the project has cleared the Board of Public Works & Safety a Land Alteration Permit (LAP) can be issued to commence work on the site. Once the LAP is issued the property is then eligible for a building permit.

Commercial Site Development Plan

The City of Greenwood requires a thorough code review by city staff, under the direction of the City’s Building Commissioner, before adding on to any existing commercial buildings. Staff will review all plans to ensure compliance with State of Indiana Building Codes and all City of Greenwood Ordinances. If needed, a review will also be completed simultaneously by one of our local Fire Departments to ensure compliance with all applicable fire codes.

Depending on the size of the proposed addition and other site development factors, a Commercial Site Plan Permit may be required prior to obtaining a building permit. To find out if your project will require Commercial Site Plan Approval, please contact the City of Greenwood Planning Division.
