The Environmental Health Division protects the health and well-being of Racine's visitors and residents alike by annually licensing and inspecting the numerous lodging facilities within the City. A lodging facility in the City of Racine is defined as a hotel, motel, bed and breakfast, or rooming house. Operating licenses for these facilities are applied for through the Environmental Health Division.
The following is required for licensing:
Application for Lodging Facility License
