What are the setbacks for a shed?
A shed must be a minimum of three (3’) feet from your back and side property lines and a minimum of five (5’) feet from any other structure. A shed cannot be placed in or on an easement unless you obtain written permission from the utility company. Sheds built on a concrete slab are not allowed in an easement.

A shed may be allowed to be placed against a fence ONLY if a minimum twenty (20’) feet street, alleyway, or public dedicated drainage easement exists on the other side of the fence.
