What are my setbacks?

Setbacks are the distance required from a property line to any structure. You need to know setbacks prior to submitting a site plan to the county (for a permit). Read more about measuring setbacks (PDF), defining the front property line and placing a fence on a property. Please contact Planning and Zoning staff to verify setbacks and any special plat restrictions for your property.
