What are the required lot sizes and setbacks?

ZONING REQUIRED SETBACKS A setback is defined by the Unified Development Code as “the minimum horizontal distance between a lot line and a building or structure located upon such lot required by the provisions of this Ordinance.” In order to know the distances from the proposed structure or addition to the lot lines, you need to know where your property lines are located. If your property has been surveyed or is a platted lot, survey pins should be located at the corners of your property. If there are no property pins, or you are unsure of their location, please see the attached “Tips for Locating Your Property Lines.” You may also have easements located on your property.  Please use the link below to refer to Article VII, Section 107-147-2; Summary Table of Zoning District Dimension Standard and turn to page CD107:181
