The City of Lino Lakes does not require a license for most types of businesses. However, certain businesses, including those selling alcohol, tobacco, fireworks, or secondhand goods, must have a City license. Solicitors, kennels, and gambling such as raffles or bingo also require a license. Please contact city staff for application information.
Also, different types of businesses are allowed in different zoning districts. You can check the Zoning Map to find out the zoning of a particular property and the Land Use Regulations to find out which uses are allowed. Contact the City Planner if you have any questions related to land use or zoning.
Even if your business does not need a City license, most types of building renovations will require at least one building permit. You can contact Building and Inspections for more information.
