Do I need a permit to build a garage/outbuilding in the City of Lebanon?
A garage/outbuilding permit is required. Contact the Community Development Department for the permit. You may call the Community Development Director Cathy Mustard or the House Inspector Noel Massey at (417) 532-2156.


You must call1-800-dig-rite before digging. They will mark all utilities.

Set-backs must conform to the City Ordinances. The general rule is if the building is more than 10 feet from the house the garage or outbuilding can set within 5 feet of the rear and side property line, except it cannot set over any easements.

If you have a corner lot the set-back would be greater depending on the zone you live. In a RS-1 zone the street set-back would be 30 feet. In a RS-2 zone the street set-back would be 25 feet.

We will be happy to schedule an appointment to come to your house and discuss the location of your project before you make a final decision on location.

PLEASE CONTACT BUILDING AND ZONING BEFORE CONSTRUCTING A GARAGE OR OUTBULIDING. IT IS THE PROPERTY OWNERS RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE A PERMIT HAS BEEN OBTAINED.
