Side-Yard Air Conditioner Permits
Side-yard placement of air conditioner units, fans, generators, and other mechanical units is restricted by the zoning ordinance. The preferred location for these units and other similar mechanical appurtenances to buildings such as fans or emergency generators is in the rear yard. Front yard placement is prohibited.

When side yard placement is requested, the unit must have no less than a three-foot setback from the property line, and appropriate screening is required. The endorsement of the adjacent neighbor is requested. A fee and an application form with a plan sketch are required, subject to the zoning administrator’s approval.
