Business Owners Guide
Thinking about opening a business on or near the Harrisonville Square? We’d love to talk to you and see how we can help! Please review the information and resources below to get started.
We also recommend that you first contact the Community Development Department at the City of Harrisonville (816-380-8958) to determine if your business concept is allowed and get the most up to date applications.
The Historic Preservation Commission of the City of Harrisonville oversees this area of the square to maintain the historic quality of the buildings within the National Historic Preservation District. Buildings outside this district are not under the HPC but are still under the oversight of Community Development.
It is important to contact the city to see what business uses are allowed in the zoning district. You can check those out under the pages Regulations CBD-1 and CBD-2 Zoning included in this section.
Any exterior improvement must be approved by the Historic Preservation Commission. Windows, siding, paint, exterior signage, facia, parapets, and other exterior elements.
These are the rules regarding exterior work and the guidelines Community Development follows when a construction permit is submitted for changes to the exterior of a building. Some minor items may be approved without going to HPC, but they are very limited. HPC approval will be required before a permit can be issued.
The Grants.gov is managed by the Department of Health and Human Services and is an E-Government initiative operating under the governance of the Office of Management and Budget with information on a number of grant programs for different needs.
