You DO need to obtain a Land-Use Permit before placing any shed on your property.  Any shed greater than 200 sq/ft in size will also require a Building Permit.  You can obtain your Land-Use Permit by clicking HERE.

Beginning January 3, 2023, Land-Use Permits will no longer be issued same day. A turnaround of 5-7 business days can be expected so as to allow adequate review of applications and submitted documents.
