Setbacks are required distances between the vertical walls of buildings and property boundaries. Generally, they are described as front, rear and side yard setbacks. Setbacks vary from zero to fifty feet depending on the zoning classification for the property. Typically the front yard faces the road. However, irregularly shaped parcels or parcels that abut more than one road can have unique setback requirements.
Setbacks and zoning classifications are described in the Kerman Municipal Code.
