In order to preserve the character of residential neighborhoods home occupations are regulated within residential districts. Daycare and state licensed facilities are permitted uses that are not considered a Home Occupation.
Home occupations should be conducted in a manner consistent with ordinance requirements. Below are some guidelines that may assist:
Some permitted home occupations include, but are not limited to, minor repair services (camera repair, computer repair, etc.), professional offices, photo, and art studios. Auto repair of any type whether for profit or not for profit is prohibited. Auto repair may only take place on vehicles owned by residents of a property. Accessory buildings and garages may not be used for home occupations.
