A shed requires a permit if it is over 200 square feet in size. Sheds must be placed at least three feet from your side or back property line and off any easements across your property. Sheds also must be anchored and the maximum height of a shed is 14 feet to the mean distance between eaves and ridge of a gable, hip or gambrel roof. Make sure your new shed plus any existing garage space does not exceed 1,400 square feet.

Small patios and sidewalks typically do not require permits, however the amount of hard cover/imprevious surfaces allowed on your lot may be limited in shoreland areas and other special zoning districts. If you have questions about hard cover requirements, please contact PlanningDivision@FridleyMN.gov.
Structural slabs do require a permit.
Locating your property boundaries may help ensure that fences, sheds and other improvements are appropriately placed. Several resources for locating your property boundaries are available, including a Certificate of Survey, aerial imagery, locating your property pins, and consulting a professional land surveyor.
