A permit is required for all swimming pools, either above-ground or below-ground pools, which are capable of holding water 24 inches or deeper. A minimum 48-inch safety barrier is also required. This is typically a fence, or in the case of an above-ground pool the sidewall may serve as the barrier. Access limitations may apply. Setback requirements are the same as for other accessory structures. Contact the Building Official at 641-673-7472 for help with specific requirements.
