Good to Know...

Temporary structures and carports are not allowed with in City limits.

There are several reasons for this. Temporary structures/carports do not meet the criteria of an approved structure, as they are not considered permanent structures. Per City ordinance, the general appearance and construction materials of a structure shall resemble the residence; which is not the case with a temporary structure. In addition, you are unable to regulate the construction of a temporary structure creating a potential safety hazard. Temporary structures/carports are not structurally sound, and also tend to deteriorate quickly and are unreliable. For example, a strong windstorm could easily damage a temporary structure or even cause it to be blown away causing damage to neighboring properties.
