Here are some important rules you need to follow. The specific municipal code reference is given in parentheses.
Occupancy of Dwelling Units
Know the zoning of your property. Houses located in the R-L zone are classified as single family dwelling units. No more than two unrelated adults can live in a house in the R-L zone. Houses or apartments in the R-M zone also do not allow more than two unrelated adults per dwelling unit (18.38.030, 060; and definition of family).

Fences no taller than 6' do not need a permit. However, there are several standards, which must be followed to construct a fence on your property. For instance, fences in the required front yard setback (front 25' of your property) cannot be taller than 42", and cannot be located in the public right-of-way. Please consult our "Guide to Residential Fencing Standards" before beginning your fencing project or pick up a copy at 1100 10th Street, Suite 202.
Most signs, including temporary banners, require permits. Sign permits are available at 1100 10th St., Suite 202. Planners are available for assistance between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Call (970) 350-9780 to schedule an appointment.
Each residence in Greeley may have up to 2 garage sales in a calendar year for the purpose of disposing of common household items that tend to accumulate over time. Each event may last up to 3 consecutive days. These limits are in place to prevent undue traffic and impacts in residential areas while allowing for the occasional yard sale.
If a property is found to have an excessive number of garage sales, you will receive a Notice of Violation and be required to appear at an Administrative Hearing. This may result in a minimum fine of $100.00 plus any additional penalties assessed by the administrative hearing officer, per violation if this is your first violation. Subsequent violations could result in substantial penalties and fines.
