How are setbacks measured?
Setbacks are measured from the property line. Setbacks are not measured from the edge of street pavement or the edge of easements on the property. The best way to determine the exact location of all of your property lines is to refer to a plat of survey or to have a land surveyor locate the actual property pins.
