A pool permit is needed for a pool over one foot in depth, including
installation of an above-ground pool or construction of a permanent
Set-back requirements are generally the same as those for any permanent
structure. Pools are required to be protected from children accidentally
accessing the area.
A minimum of 5' high fencing is required for in-ground pools, while
railing that brings pool to a minimum of 5' off ground level with lock-up
ladders are normally sufficient for above-ground pools.
The fencing needs of your particular installation can be reviewed when
you apply for your permit. Contact the City Building/Zoning Office, at
