Permits and Licenses

The City of Rochester issues permits and licenses to protect the health, safety and welfare of citizens and visitors. These documents give our employees a means to manage a wide variety of intersecting codes and regulations that all have the common purpose of maintaining public order. For our customers, permits and licenses offer assurance that their transactions with the City are guided by the rules of law.

This page serves as a "one-stop-shop" index of City permits and licenses that directs our customers to the appropriate departments to submit their application.
