Deck, Accessory Building & Fences

In order to accommodate residents of newly constructed homes in the Village and the orderly completion of lot grading and stabilization, the following policies on construction of decks, accessory structures, and fences are established:
  1. No permits for fences, storage sheds or other accessory structures except decks will be issued until such time as final grading, lot stabilization and landscaping is completed by the contractor or homeowner and approved in writing by the Village Engineer or his representative.
  2. A permit for the construction of a deck, accessory to a single family residence, may be issued provided that the final grading of the lot is completed, inspected and approved by the Village Engineer or his representative, and provided that the Standards for Issuance of Deck Permits are met.
In conjunction with the issuance of a deck, if stabilization is not complete and if no surety is on file for the stabilization of the lot, the applicant shall deposit surety in a form acceptable to the Village Engineer in the amount of $750 to insure stabilization. Upon approval of the stabilization, surety shall be returned.
