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.
