Accessory Outdoor Swimming Pools for Residences

The City Planning Commission may permit, as accessory to a use in Use Group 2 other than a single-family or two-family residence, an outdoor swimming pool to be located not less than 50 feet from any lot line, provided that such pool is so located as not to impair the essential character of the residential neighborhood.

The Commission may require that the pool be appropriately screened from other areas on the same or adjacent zoning lots. In special circumstances where the Commission finds that the design operates as a suitable buffer or the conditions of topography so warrant, the minimum distance of 50 feet may be reduced or waived.

The Commission shall in each case give due consideration to the effect of such location on the adjacent residences and the street and may impose appropriate conditions and safeguards.
