Home Occupation Code Amendments

City Council

The Everett City Council held meetings on August 18 and September 1 to consider an update to the Unified Development Code home occupation regulations.

Planning Commission

The City of Everett Planning Commission held a virtual public hearing on July 20, 2021 to take public testimony and make a recommendation to the City Council for potential amendments on a proposed ordinance regarding home occupation regulations (Everett Municipal Code 19.08.120), which are small business activities conducted within a residence, by the resident, subordinate to the residential use. Goals of the updated regulations are to broaden opportunities for home-based entrepreneurs and clarify and simplify code enforcement activities.

If you have any questions about the code amendment, please contact Dan Eernissee, Economic Development Director, at 425-257-8681 or deernissee@everettwa.gov.
