Is it permissible to operate a business out of my residence?

Only businesses that do not host clients or customers are allowed at residences in our community.  Examples of businesses that are not allowed include: hair salons, childcare services, auto repair, medical care services, etc.

Our Articles of Incorporation state, in part, "The Lots shall be used for residential purposes exclusively...except as permitted by local zoning ordinances."

Fairfax County zoning ordinances allow home occupations with limitations.  Examples of permissible businesses include a home office for an author, artisan, webmaster services, teleworker, etc. No clients or customers are permitted to be hosted in the community with a home occupation. The one exception to this standard is a school of special education (e.g., piano or dance instruction) in which a limited number of students is permitted in the home.
