Use Permits

Commercial Occupancy Use Permit is required if you are occupying a new commercial space or are a new occupant of an existing commercial space.

A Commercial Use Permit provides the Eureka Fire Protection District with vital information on the activities of commercial occupancy. It also includes emergency contact information in the event of an incident at that occupancy after business hours to someone with authority to make decisions for that occupancy.

Commercial Use Permit Fee: $50.00 per occupant or tenant space up to 1000 sq. ft. and $100 for spaces over   1000 sq. ft. Permit voided after occupant or tenant space has been vacated.
