Jump Start Project Management Meetings


HandshakeA "Jump Start" meeting is an opportunity for a business owner who is considering a relocation or expansion of a business in the City of Chino to learn about important issues and concerns, possible permit requirements and available incentives and services.

Are the "Jump Start" meetings helpful?

The City has found that working from a very early stage with business owners planning to relocate or expand saves time, cost and frustration.

It is easier to plan a project in a way that addresses regulations, issues and concerns, than to change existing plans later in the process.

At the "Jump Start" meeting, you will receive preliminary information and advice regarding regulations, permits and fees that will be required for your new relocation or expansion. You will also have an opportunity to meet the City staff assigned to your project.

How do I know if my business needs a "Jump Start" meeting?

  • If you will perform work or store material outside the enclosed buildings at your location.

  • If your operations include processing, handling, storing, or discharging hazardous materials, including chemicals and solvents.

  • If you generate any hazardous waste at your site.

  • If you discharge any waste other than domestic waste to the sewer system.

  • If you weld or cut metal.

  • If you store any flammable liquids.

  • If you spray paint.

  • If you sand, cut or shape wood.

  • If you store materials higher than 6 feet.

  • If you will add new machinery, equipment or storage units outdoors or on the roof.

  • If you use large capacities of water, gas, electricity and/or will discharge to the "brine line."
