What it the size limit for building a detached garage or storage barn?
Accumulative* area for all accessory buildings shall not exceed 900 square feet. The accumulative area of all accessory buildings located within the rear yard shall not exceed 20% of the rear yard area.

*Included in that 900 square feet would be any existing accessory structures located on your property.

If your current plan is larger than 900 square feet, including existing accessory buildings, seek further instructions on how to proceed with a variance request by contacting the Planning and Zoning Department at 330-633-0090 or by email.
