Home Occupation
(1) The following standards shall apply to both light and general home occupations:
(a) The burden of proof shall be upon the applicant to prove that the standards of this section will be met, especially regarding possible nuisances and truck traffic. Based upon the potential nuisances of a proposed home occupation, the Zoning Hearing Board may determine that a particular type or intensity of use is unsuitable to be a home occupation or that the proposed lot area or setbacks are not sufficient.
(b) Parking and loading.
(i) The applicant shall prove to the satisfaction of the Zoning Hearing Board in the case of a general home occupation that the use will include adequate off-street parking and loading spaces. The amount of parking in the required front yard should be held to a minimum to maintain a residential character. Therefore, the Board may allow appropriate, safe on-street areas to be used to meet a portion of parking needs.
