A setback is defined as the distance between a street line and the front building line of a principal building or structure, projected to the side line of the lot, and including driveways and parking areas, except where otherwise restricted by this ordinance.
A common misconception is that setback distances and setback requirements are taken from the centerline of the road or the edge of pavement. This is false. All setbacks are taken from the actual property line, located between your front property pins (pipes). If this line cannot be accurately located in the field, we suggest contacting a professional land surveyor to complete a boundary survey and accurately locate the property lines for you.
