Can I operate a business from my residence?
Home occupations require approval from the Planning Division prior to the commencement of business operations. Zoning approval is needed prior to the issuance of a City Business License. There is a $10 fee to obtain a zoning clearance.

For more information on Home Occupations, please refer to Article 2.T of the Zoning Code or contact the Planning Division at (434) 799-5261.More...
