Residential parcel owners may not conduct commercial business from their parcel. These parcels may be used as residences only. They may be rented or leased for all or part of the year. They may also be used as a bed and breakfast where food and beverages are available for sale and consumption by guests residing at the bed and breakfast. Also note, you may build up to 25% of the gross parcel square footage on residential parcels.


Commercial parcels may be used as residences as well as for commercial purposes. Some examples include: hotel/resort, bed & breakfast, eco-tour operator, market, bar, restaurant, rentals (kayak, canoe, sailboat, rowboat, etc.), tours, t-shirt & novelty shop, contractor, tool rental, etc... Also note, you may build up to 50% of the gross parcel square footage on commercial parcels.
