    Is it required first to get approval from a City Council to costruct a haunt, even if it is temporary? I can see in some cases the answer to this would be yes. But If it is going to be on comercial zoned land such as a County fairgrounds, is this required?

    Just something to know and get covered.

    YES.

    Caveats, methinks

    for building up even temporary, very much a yes. If it is a haunted trail, the answer is no since there are no buildings to be built, but it may require a certificate of occupancy, though and insurance you still want...
    The word for the day is NPD. Check it out.

    You don't necessarily need an approval from the City Council.
    Many types of business have already been approved.

    Go to the Cities Building and Safety, there you will
    find the Planning Department, that's were to start. They can
    tell you if you need City Council approval and get you
    pointed in the right direction.

    Remember what works in one city and state may not work
    for you. And it is best to go there in person and get business
    cards of who you talk to.

    Hope this helps

    Listen to MidnightEvil and research this locally. Every state, county, city, and in some places other political subdivisions (in Portland we have a tri-county entity called Metro, for example) has their own rules and requirements. You simply have to do the leg work to make sure you don't run afoul of their rules.

    Have fun!
