Can I install a pool?

Swimming pools are permitted as accessory structures only. This means they must be placed on a lot with a principal structure. Pools must be located in the rear yard, behind the main structure or house and placed a minimum of 6 feet from any side lot line and a minimum of 10 feet from any rear lot line. A 6 foot fence that encloses the pool is required. An above ground pool must comply with the impervious lot coverage found here.
