Chickens are only allowed on properties of at least 20,000 square-feet.
Yes, chicken coops are allowed. First, confirm that your property is permitted to have chickens. Chickens are only allowed on properties of at least 20,000 square-feet. The chicken coop must be set back not less than sixty (60) feet from the front property line or any street line, and shall be not less than forty (40) feet from any side or rear property line.
It may only be stored on your residential property if the vehicle or equipment is adequately screened from view. For vehicles over six (6) feet high, at least seventy (70) percent of the height shall be screened. No vehicle or equipment may be placed within the minimum side yard setback area unless it maintains a minimum five-foot setback from the property line.
Residential properties are required to provide two enclosed parking spaces and two unenclosed parking spaces. Each parking space must have a minimum 9'x19' dimension. The enclosed parking spaces are typically provided in a two-car garage and the unclosed enclosed spaces are typically the driveway spaces in front of the garage. If a project proposes to reduce the number of required parking spaces, an Exception Permit will be required. If the project includes an ADU, per state law, conversion of a garage into an ADU does not require the parking spaces to be replaced.
