Can I build my garage/shed/accessory building up to the side and rear property lines?

Garages, sheds, and other accessory buildings may be built up to the side and/or rear property lines when the building is located seventy-five feet (75') or more from the front property line. Walls located closer than three feet (3'0") to a property line may have no openings and shall be of one hour fire-resistive construction.


The required rear yard is usually within twenty (20') feet of the rear property line. Please check with planning staff to verify requirements specifically for your property.
