Home Occupation

Businesses Operated out of a home are called Home Occupations and are subject to the requirements of the Unified Development Ordinance (PDF), Chapter 780.

Some types of business operations can be conducted at home with little or no effect on the surrounding neighborhood. The regulations of the Ordinance (PDF) are intended to permit occupations while ensuring these businesses will not have any detrimental impact on the use and enjoyment of surrounding properties. The ordinance requires that home businesses remain clearly incidental and subordinate in floor space to the residential use of the property and that the home occupation will not change the essential residential character of the dwelling.
