Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance amends Section 17.16.250 of the Metro Code to amend “personal care services” as defined for home occupations to clarify that the definition does not include “care of or services for animals”. The ordinance also adds “animal grooming activities” to the list of prohibited home occupations.

 

The Code currently defines “personal care services” as “spa services and beauty and barber care” in the context of home occupations. This is a home occupation that is allowed customer visits (subject to the restrictions of Section 17.16.250.D.3). Three activities are currently expressly prohibited as home occupations, regardless of customer visits: manufacture or repair of automobiles and other transportation equipment; repair of equipment that takes place outdoors; and the outdoor storage of construction, scrap, or salvage materials.

 

This ordinance has been approved by the Planning Commission.
