Swimming Pool Permit

A Swimming Pool Permit is required for the installation of any above-ground or below-ground pool with a capacity of more than 5,000 gallons.

Special Notes
The City Code requires swimming pools of 5,000 gallons or more be completely protected by an appropriate barrier (unclimbable fence) of not less than 6 feet in height. Gates must be self-closing and self-latching. A site plan is also required for the location of the pool on the site.


All construction or work for which a permit is required is subject to inspection by the Building Official. The applicant is responsible for contacting the Community Development Department at appropriate intervals during construction.

Permit is usually granted in 1 to 2 days.
