John, I wish you were right. But the town policy is to interpret all zoning law by "the strictest interpretation possible." The rules are written so that its not perfectly clear, and thus, Tom Johnson made his ruling. If I wanted to fight it in court, I'd probably win, but as a tax payer in Durham, I'd be paying for both sides in the law suit and I'd rather go where I'm welcome. The Town Council is now working to clean up the language.

If you only have one employee in Durham, that's less than 4, and presumably within zoning for a "Home Occupation" The town can't count employees who are in other places.


Well Katie, I'm sorry that it has come to that, but honestly - we are SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU!

As I see it Katie, Durham's loss is Berlin's gain. It's very sad when the regulations we help put in place with good intentions come back to bite us in the backside. (Been there done that) Mayor Bob.... a diamond in the rough or a chunk of coal?
