SITE ISSUES – HOUSE & GARAGE PLACEMENT

  1. Houses must face the street, generally toward the narrow end of the lot. Houses on corner lots should be oriented in the same direction as the adjacent houses, which is usually the street with the least frontage. Orientation should be confirmed before preliminary designs are prepared.
  2. House setbacks must conform to the City Zoning Code. Typically the front setback is the average setback of adjoining properties. The Plat of Survey that is required for a building permit will determine the exact setback.
  3. Houses do not have to be centered along street frontage. They may be shifted to the North or West to create a viable side yard.
  4. Parking is required behind the house at the rear yard. A detached garage is preferred and often required; otherwise a concrete parking slab is required. Access shall be from the alley, if available.
  5. The garage set back shall be at least four feet from the alley.
  6. Driveways should be minimal in size to cut down on impervious surfaces. Porous paving is strongly encouraged. Side driveways are required for lots without an adjoining alley.
  7. Attached garages at the front or rear of the house are only permitted in rare circumstances and must be submitted for review and approval.
