Do I need a permit for a shed or detached garage?

Yes, you need to fill out a permit form and provide the city with a complete plan showing the lot, the house on the lot, the location of the shed or garage on the lot along with all other structures on the lot and the set backs from the lot lines and the home (minimum 5 feet from the side and rear lot lines and 10 feet from the home) (section 14.04, section 19).
