Do you allow application stacking (more than one application submitted on one property)?

The City will only accept two retail or microbusiness application Zoning Verification Letters (ZVL) per property (APN).  Every owner on the application will be required to complete the Ownership Acknowledgement form which will be provided on the City's website when application documents are released.
