  • Edgewood Municipal Code Sections 18.100.070 and 18.100.080 identify the standards for a Home Business and a Limited Home Business, respectively. These two categories of home occupation have distinct compliance standards that are based on the type of business proposed. A home occupation is intended to allow residents of single- or multi-family dwellings to operate businesses or conduct commercial activity from their principal residence or from a permitted accessory structure
    while achieving the goals of retaining the residential character of the dwelling and the neighborhood.
