A property may be nonconforming in regards to the use of the property, the size or location of buildings or structures on the property, or the size and configuration of the lot itself. Chapter 13 of the Zoning Ordinance establishes regulations for the treatment of buildings, structures, lots and land uses considered nonconforming and specifies circumstances and conditions under which nonconformities shall be repaired, enlarged, moved, restored or terminated.
Only members of the family occupying the premises shall engage in the home occupation.
No article shall be sold or offered for sale on the premises and no mechanical or electrical equipment shall be installed or maintained other than is customarily incidental to domestic use.
There shall be no exterior display, exterior sign, no exterior storage of materials, no other exterior indication of the home occupation or variation from the residential character of the principal building or any accessory building, and no offensive noise, vibration, smoke, dust, odors, heat or glare shall be produced, nor shall such home occupation create a parking or traffic problem.
No more than one vehicle associated with the home occupation shall be permitted on the premises.
Each zoning district establishes a specific list of allowable uses. Allowable uses are divided into two categories; either permitted or special uses. A use listed as “permitted” is considered to always be appropriate for the zoning district and does not require any special permission from the City Council. A use listed as “special” is considered to have characteristics that may create off-site negative impacts on allowable permitted uses within the zoning district and therefore requires a public hearing before the Planning and Zoning Commission and ultimate approval by the City Council.
