Any building or edifice, or any constructed addition to a building or edifice that changes its external dimensions or anything not collapsible, which is placed or built in or on the ground, shall be considered a structure. Every structure shall be subject to setback requirements prescribed by the City Code. Required permits shall be obtained for structures before they are placed. Temporary storage bins or units and the like are not considered structures, unless they meet applicable building codes; provided, however, that such storage bins or units and the like are only permitted pursuant to a conditional use permit in all zones, except for “I” zones, in which no conditional use permit is required. Accessory use buildings with a footprint of less than 30 square feet and up to 8’ in height are not considered structures, but are still subject to established setbacks. Buildings with this footprint size are an exception to the accessory building separation setback only and therefore allowed to be placed within 5’ of other accessory buildings. P.
