FAQs

  • Q:

    × Do I need a permit for a shed?

    You may need a building permit, and you need to check with the Planning Division to make sure that the shed is allowed and will fit with your allowable lot coverage. A building permit is required if the building is more than 200 square feet in size or over 8 feet tall. The Planning Division can help make sure that you meet your property's requirements for zoning, lot coverage, setbacks, and other issues.

  • Q:

    × Do I need approval to put a sign on my property?

    Yes, you need approval to put a sign on your property. You need to talk to the Planning Division to make sure that what you propose is within the allowed signage for the property. You need a Building Permit for the sign's structure and attachments. If the sign is in the right of way, you need a Right of Way Use Permit.

  • Q:

    × How do I apply for a land use application?

    The Planning Division handles land use applications. There are a number of different land use applications including annexations, variances, right-of-way vacations, conditional uses, site plan and architectural reviews, land divisions, and code or text amendments. Any type of property improvement or development may trigger a land use review so it is important to check with the Planning Division to discuss your intentions prior to starting a project.
