Accessory Buildings / Structures
Accessory structures are incidental to the main structure or building, and are located on the same lot. Accessory structures include things like swimming pools, garages, sheds, carports, and free-standing solar energy collectors.
Detached accessory buildings and/or structures are allowed in all zoning districts in side and rear yards. Because City ordinances regulate their setbacks, size, and location, they must meet specific requirements.
