In my experience, you don't need to worry about a permit for such things, even if you don't officially own your front yard. Like a lot of folks, my property line is at my front door, but I have a 12 x 15 front yard that I don't technically own. I had a 10-foot long grape arbor out there for several years, and even my jerk neighbor didn't complain. I'd chance it.
