Boulder City Efforts Focus on Business-Friendly Processes

City Hall Summer

Boulder City is taking on several initiatives to make City Hall more “user-friendly” for building permits and business licenses. These efforts will benefit residents and local businesses doing business in Boulder City. Initiatives include:

-  Several types of building permits can now be submitted and paid for online, with plans to add additional permits in the near future;

-  A streamlined Business License process;

-  Inspection results will be provided in the field, saving customers time and keeping them in the loop on the permit process;

-  Community Development staff is working to simplify the Redevelopment Agency  (RDA)  application and  process  to encourage  additional business reinvestment.


The City will soon have an Economic Development Coordinator on staff as well. “This individual will serve as a liaison between the business community and the City,” said Boulder City Manager Al  Noyola. “I am optimistic that these steps will be helpful as we keep our economy moving forward.”


“As the City creates a Strategic Plan for the next five years, we will also embark on creating an Economic Development Plan,” said Boulder City Community Development Director Michael Mays. “This 

plan will have measureable, actionable goals that will allow the community to track our progress with improving customer service and economic development efforts.”


“As reported at the Economic Vitality Town Hall, the Community Development Department at City Hall has really embraced the charge of putting customers first for residents and businesses alike. Improved counter service, upgrades to the online application systems, and faster turn-around times on approvals have provided those doing business with City Hall a much better experience,” said Jill Rowland-Lagan, CEO of the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce. “We are excited to see what the City will be doing to create a ‘one-stop shop’ approach with a facility that is more user friendly and has clerical staff that can assist for multiple departments.”
