Andre:

You might want to be careful. A lot of neighborhoods don't allow a person to have a business in their home. If you're in the middle of a residential area, the chances of the Planning Commission rezoning your place to commercial are slim.

If everything around you is commercial, go for it, your chances are probably pretty good.

Hello Andre, John is right. Planning is the one who makes the determinations. Sometimes they can be difficult, however. I would start with your councilman and talk to him. If you are working there now, why not continue? Did someone say you were in violation?

Your best bet would be to contact the planning dept at your local city hall. Let them know what you're trying to do and they should be able to direct you on the right path. Good Luck!
