Identify The Zoning You Need And Define Your Geographic Boundaries

Each municipality such as has a zoning ordinance which specifies which businesses can operate in differently zoned areas. You can go to www.municode.com – they provide online ordinance presence for numerous municipalities. Examples are :

– Industrial – Pompano Beach, Florida
– Industrial – Delray Beach, Florida
– Industrial – Margate, Florida
– Industrial – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

It is critical that you first identify where your business can legally operate and then limit your search to those areas. If you don’t do this, it will be a very expensive and time consuming mistake. I can’t emphasize this enough.

You need to identify where you want to locate. Over my professional career as an industrial specialist I have found that given all things equal, the final space location is strongly influenced by the proximity to the owner of the company’s personal residence. Other factors to consider are: distance to major interstate highways, airports, shipping ports, rail service, labor force, public transportation and markets served. A good idea is to determine the furthest you will go in all directions. This helps make the search workable.
