Title 17C Land Use Standards
Chapter 17C.110 Residential Zones
Additional Site Development Standards.
Distance Between Houses.
The minimum distance between all buildings in the development must be equal to twice the required side building setback standard of the base zone. A deed restriction must be recorded on the deed of each applicable lot to ensure the continued fulfillment of this setback.
The eaves on the side of a house with a reduced setback may project a maximum of twenty-four inches over the adjacent property line. In this case, an easement for the eave projection must be recorded on the deed for the lot where the projection occurs.
An easement between the two property owners to allow for maintenance or repair of the house is required when the eaves or side wall of the house are closer than five feet to the adjacent property line. The easement on the adjacent property must be wide enough to allow five feet between the eaves or side wall and the edge of the easement.
