CROWN POINT | The City Council has upheld a Board of Zoning Appeals recommendation to permit an in-home business in Schmidt Farms subdivision.

Darin and Nancy Jacobs operate a web-based home business involving the selection and shipping of decals for arcade and pinball machines at their home in the 200 block of E. 127th Place.

The zoning appeals board recommended granting a special use permit to the business in a residential zone after hearing evidence the business complies with city regulations for an in-home business. Several neighbors also supported the business.

The City Council granted its approval. Councilman Chad Jeffries, D-1st, said he'd been contacted by a Schmidt Farms resident, who said several residents opposed permitting an in-home business in the subdivision.

Jeffries said the subdivision homeowners association should have polled residents before the matter was brought to the city.
