The City of South Pasadena’s top priority is the health and safety of our community as the situation around the coronavirus continues to evolve. For facility closures, event cancellations, and more information, click here

As we monitor the evolving situation surrounding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to be sure to keep our business owners up to date on current information and available resources. The City is continuing to track the latest developments from local, state, and fedeegfral agencies. This page will be updated frequently as new information and resources become available.

Business License

Due to COVID-19, the City is delaying any penalties as a result of non-payment and renewals. Any business licenses that were previously past due will not incur any new fees during this period. Additionally, anyone who needed to renew and has not submitted their renewal will not incur late fees. New applicants will be required to pay their fees as usual. Further relief for small businesses is not available at this time, however, the Chamber of Commerce will be notified of any changes.

Eviction Moratorium

 There is a temporary moratorium on residential and commercial evictions in response to the COVID-19 crisis. We continue to encourage all landlords and tenants - commercial and residential - to speak with each other to discuss your individual situation and come up with a plan. Please remember that both landlords and tenants are being affected by the "safer-at-home" conditions, and everyone still has financial responsibilities and obligations.
