Is a permit required for a permanent cargo container?

Yes, if the container is larger than 200 square feet in size.  Since at least July 3, 2009, a permit has been required for using cargo containers on properties within unincorporated Washoe County. Containers smaller than 200 square feet in size do not require a permit.
