1. WHAT ZONING DISTRICT IS MY PROPERTY IN?

The Zoning Division has a PDF map available at this page where you can browse the City for your property. You may also contact us for assistance in this at any time.

Knowing what zoning district your property is in will help you with permitting, business licenses, due diligence, appraisals, etc.
 

2. WHERE CAN I PUT A FENCE IN MY YARD?

All fences are permitted up to the property line, with limitations to height.

Height is determined by which zoning district your home is in. MOST residential districts allow up to 4 feet tall in the front yard and 6 feet tall in the rear and sides. "F" Farm Zoning District allows up to 6 feet on all property lines.

Commercial and industrial fence heights also vary based upon Zoning District.

ALL fencing must abide by the visibility triangle regulations around driveways and intersections.
Fence regulations here.

3. WHERE CAN I HAVE A SHED?

Residential properties are permitted a maximum of two sheds. All sheds must be permitted through the Building Department. 

NO sheds within easements.
NO sheds allowed in front yards.

If the shed is 10' x 10' x 10' or smaller, and NOT placed on a concrete slab, it may be placed up to the property lines. 
If the shed meets this size limitation and is set on a slab, it must be at minimum 5' from any property line. 
If the shed is any larger than 10' x 10' x 10', it must meet the applicable zoning district setbacks for a structure.

4. WHAT ARE MY SETBACKS?

5. HOW CAN I OBTAIN A ZONING VERIFICATION LETTER?

Zoning Letters are often requested by new or prospective owners, lenders or appraisers to verify the zoning of a property and if the proposed or current use is permitted, conditional or nonconforming. We offer these letters by request for a $10 fee. At this time, please email your requests to mthrumston@pinellas-park.com. We hope to have a new fillable form available soon at this page.

6. I WANT TO THROW A PARTY. DO I NEED A PERMIT?

If the party or event is located on a residential property and only open to invited guests, no permit is required. 
If the event is open to the public, a Temporary Use permit is required.
If the event includes the closure of public roads or sidewalks, a Block Party permit is required.
More detailed information may be found in the Temporary Use section of Land Development Code.
