Pools & Pool Enclosures

Residential above ground pools, in-ground pools, and spas with more than 24 inches of water require a pool construction permit to ensure safety and quality of work. Regardless of depth, commercial (public/semi-public) pools, spas, and play features require a pool construction permit. Also, Public Interactive Water Features and Fountains (PIWFs), such as spray parks/splash pads require a pool construction permit and have special requirements.

Plan review is required before a residential or commercial pool, spray park/ splash pad or spa may be built. Plans are routed to Health & Food Safety for plan review after a Permit Technician reviews the submittal for all required documentation.
