Home Occupation Permits

Residents are permitted to operate a business from home so long as the business does not "adversely affect the residential character of the neighborhood." Please read the Home Application Permit brochure (PDF) for information on permit requirements. The City's regulations regarding working from your home are contained in Division 17.44 of Chapter 17 (PDF) of the City Code. All home-based businesses are also required to have a city business license.

After reading this information, you may download a copy of the Home Occupation Permit (HOP) (PDF) application. The current one-time fee for a HOP permit is $100, and the permit is valid for the life of the business.
