The requirement to be licensed is irrespective of the location of the business. Therefore, home-based businesses are required to license just as a business in a commercial building or zoning.
However, there may be additional steps that a home-based business must do prior to being licensed. Staff cannot issue a business license for a location that is non-conforming and/or requires further review by the Planning Commission.
However, once a ‘use on review’ is approved for a business, these businesses are then issued a business license once all documentation is provided and any applicable fees are paid.
For information on "use on review" process, please contact the City Planner at (605) 347-4422(605) 347-4422
