New Business Permit
A New Business Permit Application is required for any new tenant occupying a unit in Lockport, as well as any change in ownership or name of business. All inspections must be completed and approved prior to opening for business. A Certificate of Occupancy will be issued once all conditions of the New Business Permit have been met, allowing the business to open.
The City of Lockport has provided an application for locally landmarking your property. In addition, we have attached the application for a certificate of appropriateness. This is required for any improvements to the building that require a building permit. The Heritage and Architecture Commission must review all applications. We have also included a printable version of maintenance recommendations for buildings in the historic district.
