A zoning clearance is required for most construction projects that affect the exterior of a property. For projects that require a building permit, a separate zoning clearance is not required; the zoning review will be done as part of the building permit review. For other projects, a zoning clearance may be required even though a building permit is not.
Examples of projects requiring a zoning clearance are:
Sheds under 200 square feet without electrical or plumbing
Ramadas under 200 square feet without electrical or plumbing
