What are the specifications for installing an above ground pool?

Above ground pools are required to have a minimum ten-foot setback between all property lines and the water's edge or the closest portion of the deck constructed to serve the pool, whichever is closest to the property line.

Filters and other mechanical equipment associated with the operation of the pool are not permitted within the ten-foot setback.

Pools shall be located in rear yards only.  A minimum distance from the nearest portion of the principal building to the closest portion of the swimming pool structure should not be less than 5 feet.  A pool may be constructed closer than five feet to an open deck which is attached to the principal building.

Above ground pools shall require a plot plan of the site showing the location of the pool and any appurtenances.

Please take the plot plan of the site to the Land Use Office, Room 307 in the Municipal Building.
