The city recognizes the importance of using your home for business purposes. The city has set guidelines that regulate which type of businesses may operate from a home. These regulations help to ensure that home businesses do not impact the residential neighborhoods or change the character of the home.
To be sure your business complies with the home occupation ordinance and zoning code regulations, review the Home Occupation Permit web page. Home occupation allows minimum client/customer visits and does not allow employees, outside storage, or large deliveries of stock.

Please contact the Planning Division to verify your zoning and your particular situation.
