A pool permit application can either be obtained in Room 107 of City Hall, or online, on the Planning & Zoning Applications & Permits page. The rules for pools are outlined in Chapter 31 of the City Code, and are applicable for all residential areas.
When applying for a pool permit, the city requires a site plan showing the location of the pool on the property with measurements to nearby buildings and property lines (this does not have to be done by a contractor or other professional).
Any pool, in-ground or above-ground, over two feet in depth requires a fence with locking gate.
Pools that do not or cannot meet requirements outlined in the code would either be denied a permit or could proceed by obtaining a variance or exception from the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
