Do I need a permit for a pool?

Permits are required for swimming pools and hot tubs over 2 feet in depth. All swimming pools and hot tubs require a minimum 4-foot tall fence around the pool area or yard, per City Code. Fences must also meet the 2018 International Residential building codes (see our Swimming Pool Guidelines for more details). A completed online Building Permit Application with a licensed contractor company, a site plan that includes the location of the required fence, the distances from the pool to the property lines and primary structures, and the manufacturer’s equipment information must be submitted. Please see our Swimming Pool Guidelines for more information and to download the Supplemental Handout for in-person applications.
