No. Home occupation permits are not required. However there are standards contained in Douglas County Code that require that home occupations not cause or create nuisances, limit the number of employees, and other provisions that limit the impact on neighborhoods. Contact the Planning Technician, 775-782-6217, if you have questions.
In general the case is prioritized and usually a site inspection occurs within two business days. After a site inspection, the number and types of violations are recorded if they are present. An enforcement notice is written detailing codes violated, corrective action that is needed, and a due date that the violation(s) have to be corrected by. These notices are sent to the property owner and tenant if known. After the due date another inspection takes place. If the violations are corrected the case is closed. If the owner continues to choose not to correct the violations, cases can be referred to the District Attorney for criminal charges to be filed or Code Enforcement can assess civil penalties. Though most code cases are resolved in a short amount of time, on occasion a case will take months to come to a successful resolution due to the unwillingness of property owners or tenants.
RV occupation is limited to 7 consecutive days and no more than 14 days total in a year.
Junk in Douglas County is defined as articles of personal property that have outlived their usefulness in their original form, or articles of personal property that have been discarded and are no longer used for their manufactured purpose, regardless of value.

It depends. Poultry is regulated under animal keeping. Animal keeping is allowed on parcels zoned SFR 1 and above with at least 1 acre. There are also some properties zoned SFR 1/2 that are in a Livestock Overlay Zone that allows the keeping of animals with some provisions. Generally if you live in a residential area on less than 1/2 acre you are not allowed to keep poultry. Contact the Planning Technician to find out what your parcel is zoned. 775-782-6217.
Cargo containers, metal storage containers, or sea cargo containers are not allowed on a vacant parcel or on any parcel zoned below SFR 1. On properties zoned SFR 1 or greater, with at least 1 acre, containers are allowed with a minor design review and have to meet certain conditions. Conditions include one per acre with a maximum of 2 in residentially zoned districts, painted similar to house or earth tones, screened with a fence, and not modified to occupy humans or animals.

We recommend that you begin by speaking with the dog owner about your concerns and try to come up with a solution. Oftentimes, the owners are not home during the barking episodes and are completely unaware that a problem exists. If you are uncomfortable speaking with the dog owner, or the problem has not been resolved after communicating with the dog owner, you may call Animal Care & Services at (775) 782-9061 to file a complaint.
If you find a stray cat, you may contact Animal Care & Services to file a found animal report. Once a report has been made, our staff will review the lost cat reports on file to see if there is a match. If there is no match, you may hold onto the cat until an owner calls, or if no one calls searching for the cat within five days, it will be considered an abandoned animal and you may release the cat to Animal Care & Services, if the space is available. Please consider that we have very limited space, and oftentimes we may not have the ability to accept any cats for weeks or even months at a time.
