Lightbulb Building indoor carpet track in CA...

I'm planning to build an indoor rc carpet track in the warehouse in California.

Most of the warehouse is in the industrial zone and I found one with general industrial subarea 2.

The realtor told me that I could get the business permit of hobby product wholesale or distributor.

Is it possible to get the business permit of the RC track in the industrial zone.

I'm wondering how you guys get the business permit of your RC track in the warehouse.

I know, I should go to the city plan department to get the zone approval, but I want to know what should I prepare for it.

Would anyone give me some information of your case ?

I really want a help.

Please advise.

A permanent carpet track in SOCAL area? It shouldnt be too hard to get things rolling.Planning commission for sure so you see any and all potential snags before you open.To be honest,unless you have a Hobbystore of some nice proportions,your venture will not work out.Carpet is a seasonal thing and a track alone without a Store that can pay for everything without the money made from the track itself,will not be open long.Especially in a place with such good weather.Not trying to burst your dream bubble.It is what it is.Good luck.

You are saying that it's possible to get the zone approval for rc track in industrial zone ?

I need an advise from someone who has an experience to open a rc track in the warehouse.

I'll have a on-site hobby store too.

Thanks for reply.

Should I tell the city plan department that I'll open a rc race track in the warehouse ?
According to the permit usage in the zone document, I coudn't find the retail store or similar to rc track.
There are only wholesale, distribution, and some manufacturer.
That's why I'm wondering about.

Have you done before in the same situation ?
Thanks for reply.

In the instance of my local track,the city in which its in was pretty lenient on the rules because the city had so much unrented commercial property zoned for industrial/manufacturing,that they allowed the building to be used for retail.Its a warehouse just like what your talking about.They used to produce backyard sheds in this building before.Worth a try.Location is key to making this work.Is this place in an out of the way business park?If so,keep looking around for a place that is more exposed to foot/street traffic.Again,good luck.

You may go to local City Hall to have detail first. They will tell you what registration and what documents you have to prepare. As I knew, the process is not complicated but take time.
