What are the setbacks for my zoning district?
Setbacks are the minimum required distance between a structure and the property line. The city has different setback standards for each zoning district and differentiates between primary structures and accessory structures. Certain features (such as decks and porches) are permitted to encroach into the established setback lines. In order to determine the setbacks for your specific request, please contact the Building and Zoning Department at 540-942-6628.
