St. Louis County requires land use permits for most types of businesses. 
  • Conditional Use: Typically a business on a property where the owner does not reside and/or has employees and customer traffic. The business needs additional controls or restrictions to assure that it is in harmony with the neighborhood. Examples may be mini storage or dog kennels. 
  • Home Business: A business conducted on the property in which the owner’s home is located. It is consistent with the rural residential lifestyle and is compatible with the neighborhood. Examples may be a greenhouse or gift shop.
