Do I need a permit to install a shed?

Yes.   All sizes of sheds require a building permit.  

Please download the building permit application and review requirements for shed placement on a residential property.  

Please note that only one shed is allowed per lot and is restricted to the rear yard.

 A shed cannot exceed 150 square feet and cannot be higher than 10 feet.  If the shed is 100 square feet or less, it must be located  a minimum of 3 feet from the property line, sheds  over 100 square feet but less than 150 square feet must be located 5 feet from the rear and side property lines.
