A.   Incidental Uses: Unless otherwise prohibited or restricted herein, a permitted use also allows buildings, structures and uses incidental thereto if located on the same site or building plot. However, such incidental use, buildings and structures shall not be established or erected prior to the establishment or construction of the principal use.
   B.   Home Occupations:
      1.   Purposes: Home occupations are allowed as long as they are uses that conform to the standards of this section. In general, a home occupation is a permitted incidental use only if it is so located and conducted that the average neighbor, under normal circumstances, would not be aware of its existence. The standards for home occupations are intended to ensure compatibility with other permitted uses and the residential character of the village and to maintain the subordinate and incidental status of the home occupation.
      2.   Location: A home occupation may be conducted in any dwelling unit or in any building or structure accessory to the dwelling unit in any zoning district in which dwelling units are permitted.
      3.   Standards: The following standards shall govern the operation of a home occupation:
         a.   The building or structure in which the home occupation is located shall be fully subject to the regulations of the zoning district in which it is located.
         b.   The home occupation shall be conducted completely within the dwelling unit or within a permitted incidental building or structure.
         c.   Only the permanent residents of the dwelling unit shall be employed in the home occupation. No other persons shall be employed or involved with the home occupation activity on the premises other than a member of the immediate family residing in the dwelling unit but not more than one other person shall be permitted to visit the premises for such purpose on any day.
         d.   The home occupation shall be subordinate and incidental to the principal use of the building or structure for residential purposes. No more than fifteen percent (15%) of the gross floor area of the dwelling unit and accessory buildings or structures on the premises on which the home is located shall be devoted to the home occupation.
         e.   The outside display or storage of equipment, materials, goods, articles, commodities and/or supplies and/or the outside parking of motor vehicles utilized in the home occupation shall be prohibited. No stock in trade goods or other commodity may be kept, displayed, sold or offered for sale upon the premises.
         f.   No article or commodity shall be sold or offered for sale on the premises and no wholesale, jobbing or retail business shall be permitted, except when it is conducted entirely by mail and/or telephone and does not involve the receipt, sale, shipment, delivery or storage of merchandise on, to or from the premises. The delivery of goods or services directly to the consumer from the premises shall be prohibited. Delivery or distribution of articles or products, or other items related to the home occupation to or from the premises to or by independent contractors, employees or others shall be prohibited.
         g.   No such home occupation shall include or involve keeping, sorting or maintaining of inventory, equipment or machinery.
         h.   No mechanical or electrical equipment shall be installed or maintained which is not customarily incidental to domestic or household use, but this shall not prohibit the use of telephones, microcomputers and connected peripherals, facsimile machines, and/or photocopy machines.
         i.   Home occupations shall not in any event generate noise, vibration, glare, smoke, fumes, odors, particulate matter or electrical interference beyond that which normally occurs in the residential zoning district in which it is located, or otherwise constitute a nuisance or safety hazard to the occupants of nearby properties.
         j.   No exterior indication of the home occupation or variation from the residential character of the dwelling shall be permitted. No alteration of any building on the premises shall be made which changes the character thereof as residential structures.
         k.   There shall be no exterior display and no exterior signs.
         l.   All commercial vehicles used in connection with the home occupation shall be stored or parked within a fully enclosed and closed private garage.
         m.   A home occupation shall not create any additional vehicular or pedestrian traffic to the dwelling.
         n.   The conduct of any home occupation shall not reduce or render unusable areas provided for the required off street parking or prevent the number of cars intended to be parked in a garage from doing so. (Ord. 93-507, 12-14-1993)
   C.   Teardown Regulations: Teardowns, as defined in section 5-1-6 of this chapter, shall be allowed as long as they conform to the standards of this subsection:
      1.   The top of foundation elevation for any structure which replaces the structure which is subject to the teardown shall be limited to an elevation which is no greater than two feet (2') higher than the top of the foundation elevation of the structure which is subject to the teardown, except as may be determined by the village engineer to be necessary in order to provide flood protection for the proposed structure, but only where the need for such flood protection is not self-imposed.
      2.   All development which occurs after March 13, 2007, on any lot or parcel which is or will be subject to a teardown after March 13, 2007, shall be required to provide and maintain seepage trenches for the discharge of all sump pump drains. Said seepage trenches shall be designed in compliance with section 9-4-25, illustration J of this code and shall provide a minimum of one square foot of seepage trench per ten (10) square feet of basement area.
      3.   All development which occurs after March 13, 2007, on any lot or parcel which is or will be subject to a teardown after March 13, 2007, shall be required to comply with the regulations set forth in title 8, chapter 6, "Tree Preservation On Private Property", of this code, which regulations are hereby incorporated by reference into this subsection as fully as set forth herein.
