Hello, are there any specific rules and regulations about where a spa can be placed in a homeowners back yard? Also, does installing an above ground spa on a concrete pad (yet to be layed) require a permit?

Above ground spas are considered accessory structures and locations vary depending on certain lot conditions. If more than ten feet form the main structure, it could be three feet from the side and rear property lines if an alley exists. Closer than ten feet to the structure, it must maintain the same side yard setback as the main structure. A permit is required for above ground pools or spas. The permit fee is $50.00 plus an electrical permit if a new electrical circuit is required for the spa.
