About the Permit
The conduct of a business within a home must comply with the city's Home Occupation regulations. Home Occupation Permits are intended to provide reasonable opportunities for the occupants of the home to conduct a business while not changing the character of the home or the surrounding neighborhood.
All home occupations are required to obtain a business license from the city's Finance Department. In conjunction with the business license, all home occupations shall submit a Home Occupation Clearance Form (PDF) for review and approval by the Planning Division.
