Small Business Owners' Night

Small Business First is a multi-agency initiative aimed at reducing the burden of regulation on small businesses by making it easier for business owners to comply with the City’s rules and to interact with the City through increased education and support services, as well as improvements to the City’s regulatory environment.

The Department of Buildings welcomes small business owners to its "Small Business Owners' Night" every Tuesday from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in each of its borough offices. Staff from the Department of Buildings and the Department of Small Business Services will be available to provide information, answer questions, and link business owners to needed resources. 

During the weekly Small Business Owners' Night, New Yorkers can obtain:

  • Advice on construction plans, including the permitting process;
  • Information on how to check a contractor’s license status;
  • Guidance on reducing energy costs by weatherizing residences; Instructions on how to resolve Department-issued violations;
  • Recommendations on steps to take before purchasing or signing a lease;
  • Direction on how to secure or amend a property’s Certificate of Occupancy;
  • Permit guidelines for common improvements
  • Guidance on using the Buildings Information System (BIS) to search property history and permit information.
