Requirements to Open a Business in Sayreville:
Getting Started……Where does a business owner begin?
When a business is interested in locating/moving into Sayreville, the first question to ask is if the potential location supports the proposed business use. This entails a phone call or email to the Borough Zoning Officer. The Zoning Officer can then assist in determining the zone of the property and if the business would be a permitted use. As well, if the zoning of the property is known, the business owner can check the zoning code on the Borough website under Ordinances Chapter 26 to preliminarily gauge whether or not the business would be permitted on the proposed site.
**Contact ANDREW MASHANSKI at (732) 390-7004 or firstname.lastname@example.org Monday- Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm before you move forward in the process of filling out the forms to ensure that your business is in an allowed use**
Every situation is different and we encourage you to speak with the Zoning Officer if there is a question regarding the proposed use.
