Welcome to OpenCounter! This new tool will give you the same service and information as physically visiting the City Hall but with increased efficiency and convenience. Use it for cost and time estimates and to identify ideal locations for your business.

I hope you’ll find this tool helpful and easy to use as you build or expand your business. Thank you for investing in Denton – you’re the reason why its such a great place to live, work, and do business.
