Q. I want to run a business out of my house. What do I need to get done so I can do this?
A. If your property is not zoned for a business, you will have to fill out an Application for Zoning Amendment. You will then have to go before the City of Bay Minette Planning Commission for approval.
Q. I am adding an addition to my house (sunroom, bedroom, storage room). Will I need a building permit?
A. Yes. Any construction or remodeling requires a building permit.
