Home Business

A home based business, A/K/A “home occupation” is generally allowable in all residential zoning districts and consists of such occupations as accounting, personal services, crafts and homemade products, and similar industries. Home based businesses fall into one of two categories: minor home occupation or a major home occupation depending on the compliance with the requirements and provisions of Section 27-1605 of the Zoning Ordinance.  Except where required to be approved as a “Conditional Use”, a minor home occupation is permitted by right, while major home occupations require a Special Exception which must be granted by the Zoning Hearing Board. A Zoning permit and Home Occupation permit are required.
