A home occupation is a permitted use provided that the use is clearly secondary to the residential use of the property and if there are no adverse impacts on the neighborhood. Examples of the types of home occupations allowed might include:
- Flower arranging
- Home office
- Licensed family child care
- Telephone sales
Employees of the in-home business are limited to those who live on the premises. Up to 20% of the area of the home can be used for the home occupation. A sign is permitted up to two square feet in size. Other licenses may be required also. Please refer to Chapter 17.20.100 and the definition of “home occupation” in Chapter 17.08 of the Zoning Regulations for more information.
