BACKYARD POOLS (Chapter 75-20)
A construction permit is required for swimming pools equal to or greater than 15 ft x 3 ft in size. An application with a sketch and fee is submitted for review and an inspection of the area where the pool is to be placed is conducted prior to construction. Along with requirements of placement near lot lines and climbable structures, there may be electrical, plumbing, and fencing permit issues that may need to be examined. Any nuisances such as draining pools onto neighboring properties or dirty, stagnant water should be referred to the complaint hot line. Requests for pool construction permit applications should be directed to (414) 286-3280 or downloaded below.
