Is it a code violation to have a home business?

No. In most cases home occupations are permitted. Home occupations are regulated by the municipal code and are subject to the securing of a business license. Generally, home occupations are permitted if they do not have an impact on the neighborhood by means of excessive noise, traffic, visual blight, etc.
