Home Occupations
A home occupation is a business use that is operated out of a residence. Before conducting a business out of your home, contact the Finance Department for a Business License application for a home based business. Applications will require review and approval by various City departments prior to issuance of a business license.

  • The business use shall be clearly incidental and secondary to the residential use
  • The home occupation shall be carried on solely by a resident of the home and conducted only in one room of the residence or garage
  • The appearance of the residence shall not be altered, and no signs or displays shall be used to identify the home occupation
  • The following uses are expressly prohibited: repair or construction of motor vehicles and large appliances; massage parlors; dating services; photo schools; and dance studios
