Carports

No carport shall be permitted within the minimum required front yard setback or projected front yard of a residential dwellings except by variance granted by the Board of Adjustments.

In reviewing a request for a  carport within the minimum required front yard setback, the Board of Adjustments shall consider the following: 

Carports

  • Presence and/or absence of a garage on the residential lot, parcel or tract
  • The viability of access to the side and rear yard
  • The size, height, and design of the carport and its impact on adjacent properties
  • The incidence of other carports on the block.

A permit is required for the construction of a carport.

Setback requirements are enforced.

A carport on the front of the house typically requires a variance. 

An application/variance request, pictures and all other documentaton along with $150.00 fee should be submitted to the Building Department to be considered on the next month's agenda.

A homeowner can do any work on their property, providing it is homesteaded.

Carports built in the backyard do not require approval from the Planning & Zoning Commission but a permit must still be obtain prior to construction.

IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHETHER THE WORK YOU ARE GOING TO DO REQUIRES A PERMIT, PLEASE CONTACT THE BUILDING INSPECTOR.
