What is the biggest size storage building that I can put on my lot?
It depends on Zoning District. In R-1A, R-1B, and R-PUD Districts, the combined total area of all existing and proposed accessory structures cannot exceed 25% of the total area of the main building on the parcel (including the attached garage but excluding the basement). In the R-1A, R-1B and R-PUD District, a maximum of two accessory buildings or structures shall be permitted on an individual lot. Accessory buildings and structures that shall be counted as part of this limitation include detached garages, storage/utility sheds, detached decks, gazebos and similar structures, and above ground pools (but not inground pools). Contact us for information on accessory structure allowances in the E and A-1 Districts.
