New Business

We are pleased that you have chosen to locate your business in our community.  Feel free to stop by City Hall to become acquainted with your City management.

The first step in becoming a business member is to apply for a business license. Click HERE for more information on Business License requirements. After a fire inspection, you will be issued a Certificate of Occupancy that entitles you to do business.  If you have a home-based business, you must also get a home occupation license in addition to a business license; however, there will be no fire inspection. Click Here for information regarding installing and using alarm systems within the City.

If your business operates in multiple communities (such as cleaning services or landscaping contractors), you must have a Wood Village business license, but you can also get a Metro business license which allows you to avoid purchasing a business license in every jurisdiction within which you operate.  For more information, click HERE.


Don’t forget to post information about your business on the City’s webpage.  We receive over 2,000 unique hits per month on our page, and we want to share your business information with our web visitors.  Please click Here for more information.
