The Village of Algonquin, IL

Welcome to the website for the Village of Algonquin!

Inspections, Home Occupation

Home occupations are more abundant than ever as computer technology allows employees to work from the comforts of their own home. While the Village does not require business licenses for home occupations, the Village does have regulations with provisions to ensure that the home occupation is compatible for a residential zoned district to maintain and preserve the character of our residential neighborhoods. An inspection of the structure is required by the Building Commissioner to determine compliance with zoning and life safety requirements. A simple application form is required to be completed and there is no cost for the inspection.

Please click here and complete the form to submit a home business registration application to the Community Development Department. Village of Algonquin. If you prefer to apply in person or by email, a printable copy of the application form is also available. Questions? Please contact the Community Development Department at 847-658-2700.
