Home Occupation Permits
Businesses Operated From a Home
Businesses operated from the home of an individual must obtain a Home Occupation Permit from the Zoning Division. A Home Occupation Permit offers services to the public but has numerous restrictions:
  • No retail trade and no stock on the premises
  • No increase in traffic to and from the dwelling
  • No mechanical equipment other than that normally permitted for household purposes and no signs permitted
  • No employees except for a member of the family residing on the premises
  • No display or artificial lighting that will indicate from the exterior that the dwelling is being utilized in whole or in part for any purpose other than that of a dwelling
  • No changes to the exterior of the structure
  • A permit granted for a home occupation will be given on a yearly basis by the Zoning Administrator only during the occupancy or ownership of the person to whom it was granted
