Business Assistance

HWD staff can provide technical assistance to businesses – whether you are an existing business or you are looking to open a business to the District. The types of assistance we can provide ranges from questions about zoning, funding programs and design review requirements. We will also work with you to coordinate your project with the District’s planning efforts.
