Setback dimensions

There are three dimensions associated with setbacks. The three dimensions are front setbacks, rear
setbacks, and side setbacks. Setbacks allow for public utilities to access buildings. If any part of your
project is located within the setback standards you should first make an effort to move the structure to
meet the setback requirements. If you are unable to do so, then your zoning district may require you to
apply for a variance. A variance is a request to deviate from current zoning requirements.
