1. So you want to build?
Zoning Affects Every Building And Use: Simple questions concerning zoning and allowable uses within a zone can be answered by the Building Official according to the current zoning map and how your property is zoned

Building Permits: What you need will be determined by what you area going to build. Generally, you will need to bring a set of Building Plans and Plot Plans. However, it could be that all you would need to bring is a sketch. Fees will be determined by square footage or construction cost and the number of plumbing fixtures. Any electrical work that would require a permit must be obtained from whichever power company services your area. Pool Permits are required for above ground or in ground pools. You are required and must obtain a permit before any work can be done. You also have other requirements to meet, such as a 48 inch clearance on your pool as well as other restrictions.

Privacy Fences: Be advised, on corner lots where a double front setback is required, and where there is a common rear yard relationship with a lot in the same block, a fence on greater than forty eight (48) inches in height above the existing grade of the land may be installed along the common street line front the front building setback line to the rear of the property line. When installing a fence be aware of all easements, and do not block any storm drainage.
