Generally, no structure can be placed into the building setbacks of a property. The zoning designation sets forth the setbacks of a specific property.
In the R-1 zoning district, the front setback is typically 30’ and side setbacks are 10’ from the property line on each side, respectively. Therefore, no structure may be place outside or closer than 30’ or 10’ from the property line.
There are setbacks for all sides of a property (e.g.,front, side, rear). In some cases, the Planning & Zoning Board may grant a “variance” from the designated setbacks. For more information on variances, please see “What is a variance and how can I get one?”
Please contact the Planning and Zoning Department at 407-656-4111 ext. 5156 for specific setbacks for your property address.
