Property owners are reminded that a zoning permit is required before installing a shed in your yard.  If the shed is larger than 200 square feet in size, a building permit will also be required. 

Sheds that are 200 square feet or less must be located a minimum of five (5) feet from all property lines.  Sheds greater than 200 square feet must comply with the side yard setback requirements for the principal dwelling. 

Sheds may be located in the rear or side yard areas and may not exceed 576 square feet in size. 

Correct shed placement should take into consideration all land-use concerns such as drainage and/or utility easements. 

If in doubt about when a permit is required or for any additional questions, please call the building department at 513-792-8309.
