Wanda Kubat-Nerdin Zoning always dictates what can or cannot be done within an area. This wouldn't work in my area.

It sure sounds like it to me, Wanda.  Though I guess one would need to check the local zoning regulations and laws.  (It would definitely be illegal her in my town.)

Depends on the area. Most areas - probably. But there are a few here in Phoenix that it would work.

Depends on how much he charges for the repairs he makes?

And if that income is created without a receipt?

And if he renders unto Ceasar what is Ceasar's.

And if the service provided creates hazardous waste that is not processed correctly.

And if the neighbors benefit more by his presence than they are inconvienced by the repairs he provides.

The neighbors may be aware of this homeonwers 'second' choice which they know they are going to hate so tolerate diesel repair at a great discount.

Is THIS homeowner breaking the LAW? How would I know? Call an attorney but understand, you may start things in motion that you can not stop.

That is a decision for the municipality to decide and enforce.

The local zoning office should be able to answer this question.

You'd have to look at the specific zoning bylaw for that parcel of land. Your answer cannot be made on Active Rain!

You would really need to make sure with Planning and Zoning. They would have the definite answer for your area or Neighborhood. It sounds like it to me. A Diesel Repair Service Shop would be Commercial Zoning. They would need to be in a Commercial/Residential Zoning area, allowing both. Call your City/County, Planning and Zoning Office.
