The Town's Zoning Ordinance specifies the following activities and structures may exist in the five-acre zone of the Town, as long as certain conditions are met:
Non-Permanent Conditional Use Permit
Permanent Conditional Use Permit
The Ordinance specifies a number of conditions for such uses, e.g. impact on public health and safety, impact on neighbors, storage of material, generation of traffic, etc. All of these conditions are based on the fundamental desire to keep the residential/rural nature of the Town, to protect our local environment and to not endanger residents' privacy, safety, and peace and quiet.
Anyone who has a home-based business in Castle Valley or uses their physical Castle Valley address as their business address is required to obtain a Home/Premises Conditional Use Permit and a business license, unless they meet the requirements for a permitted agricultural business as listed in our Zoning Ordinance. Home/Premises Conditional Use Permits are considered to be Routine or Non-Routine, based upon their potential impact on the community. All other Conditional Use Permits are always considered Non-Routine.
Property owners must submit a Conditional Use Permit Application Questionnaire to the Building Permit Agent to determine the type of Conditional Use Permit that is appropriate for them. If it is determined to be a Non-Routine Conditional Use Permits, the Building Permit Agent will notify neighbors of the application and encourage them to comment in a required Public Meeting by the Planning and Land Use Commission (PLUC). The PLUC then recommends approval to the Town Council, which makes the final decision at required Public Meeting.

Permanent Conditional Use Permits run with the land and transfer to new owners automatically in the event of the sale of the lot and are not required to be renewed each year.
