Front Yard Setbacks Fact

From: William.Hersch@dallascityhall.com 

 Chief Planner Conservation District   


We consider the wall plane to be the front of the house in relation to fences, but the foundation of the porch (including any steps above 6” in height) would be the existing setback.

We do not use eaves for any setback calculations as they are allowed to project into the front yard 5’ and the side yards 3’.


Please note that the existing setback may be nonconforming and any additions would have to meet the new setback requirements. Those setbacks are listed in the ordinance.
