I'm wanting to put in a partially below ground storm shelter that is 8 wide by 6 long by 6 tall (4ft below ground and 2ft above). It is prefabricate concrete shelter FEMA approved shelter that would be in my back yard and isn't attached to the house. I know there is a 3ft rule on the property line.
It's simply digging a hole dropping it in and pushing the excavated dirt around the 2ft that is above ground.
Do I need a Permit? If so, what is the cost of the permit and how long will it take to get one.
Also, if applicable where are the City Codes that govern such improvements?

These shelters are considered accessory buildings.The permit fee for an accessory building under 100 sq. ft. is $25.00. The International Building Code and the Frisco Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance address installing and placement on the lot. If you have other questions, please call 972-335-5580.
