Do I need a permit for accessory structures?

Yes.  Accessory structures must be located in the rear yard, at least five feet from the side and rear property lines, off any easements that may be on the property, not located under any power lines, and cannot be over two stories.  Plumbing in accessory structures is limited to one commode and one lavatory. On corner lots, accessory structures must meet the required secondary front yard setback. The secondary front yard setback may be obtained by calling the Building Department.
