This collection of resources is geared to help the average citizen answer basic questions about activities that may be taking place on their property and to see which of those activities may require approval from the Planning Department.  

While fences, storage buildings and hen houses may not require building permits for construction, they do require zoning permits to ensure setbacks, locations and materials are appropriate.  These approvals are meant to protect your interests in ensuring activities are carried out correctly in the event a neighbor has questions or concerns.

Please explore the topics within this collection of resources and let us know if you have any questions.
