A shed may be erected in side and rear yard areas only and shall be set back from side and rear lines as described below:
The foundation for the shed can be a concrete slab or 4 inches of gravel.
10' x 10' or smaller shall be set back three feet from the side and the rear property lines.  An EZ Permit/Zoning Permit is required.
Sheds are to be twenty (20') feet from any adjacent dwelling.
Over 10' x 10' to 12' x 12' shall be set back three feet from the side and the rear property lines.  A Construction Permit is required.
12' x 12' or larger is considered an accessory building, the setbacks are determined by the particular zoning district that the property is located in.
To obtain a permit, please bring a copy of your property survey along with the proper permit application (EZ or Construction) to the Land Use Office, Room 307 in the Municipal Building.
