8.36.040 Setbacks.

Required setbacks describe areas on lots where no buildings, structures, or additions to them may be located, and which thereby become yard areas. Setbacks may be required between buildings, structures and property lines; between structures and road easements; between buildings and/or structures; between buildings, structures and natural features such as watercourses; or between other features of site development. These regulations are not intended to allow the placement of any structure within a road or utility easement without explicit permission from the easement holder.

A.    Setbacks established. Required setbacks are established as follows. Where there is a conflict, the means listed first in the following table shall govern:

1.    Future Right-Of-Way Line established by the City.

2.    Public Utilities Easement.

3.    Development agreements.

4.    Chapter 8.36, Development Regulations.

5.    Other provisions of this Title.

B.    Location and measurement of setbacks. The setbacks required by this Chapter shall be located on lots as shown in Figure 36-1 and as follows:

1.    Setback: The required distance that a building, structure or other designated item must be located from a lot line. The classifications of setbacks are:

a.    Front: The Front Setback is an area encompassing the Front Yard as defined in this Title. The Front Setback is measured at right angles to the Front Lot Line.

b.    Rear: The Rear Setback is an area encompassing the Rear Yard as defined in this Title. The Rear Setback is measured at right angles to the Rear Lot Line.

c.    Side: The Side Setback is an area encompassing the Side Yard as defined in this Title. The Side Setback is measured at right angles to the Side Lot Line.

d.    Street Side: The Street Side Setback is an area encompassing the Street Side Yard as defined in this Title. The Street Side Setback is measured at right angles to the Street Side Lot Line.

Figure 36-1

8.36.050 Exceptions to Setbacks.

The following setback exceptions shall apply instead of those required by Section 8.36.020, Agricultural and Residential Development Regulations, and Section 8.36.030, Commercial and Industrial Development Regulations, and any other setback requirements of this Title.

A.    Front setback exceptions:

1.    Future Right-Of-Way lines. Future Right-Of-Way lines may hereby be established by the City of Dublin to determine special building setbacks from certain street or highway rights-of-way, including future road rights-of-way. In any case where a Future Right-Of-Way Line is established, the Front Setback shall be measured from the Future Right-Of-Way Line instead of the existing right-of-way line required by this Title, provided that the exceptions for sloping lots in subsection A2 below shall also apply.

2.    Sloping lots of 40,000 square feet or less. Where an existing sloping lot contains 40,000 square feet or less in net area and setback requirements are not specified on a recorded subdivision map, the required Front Setback may be determined as set forth in this subsection instead of as otherwise required by Chapter 8.36, Development Regulations. This section is not intended to allow the placement of any structure within any easement without explicit permission from all parties to the easement. This section is not intended to allow the creation of new lots that do not satisfy all applicable standards of this Zoning Ordinance.

a.    Reduced setback for buildings. Where the average slope of an existing lot is one vertical foot for every four horizontal feet (1:4) or more in the first 60 feet of the lot measured perpendicularly between the edge of the pavement or traveled way and the proposed building, the Front Setback may be reduced by no more than 50 percent of the amount required for other lots in the same zoning district. Any structure placed at the reduced setback shall satisfy the requirements of subsection A.2.c. below.

b.    Reduced setback for parking. Where the average slope of the front 30 feet of the lot is one vertical foot for every five horizontal feet (1:5) or more as measured between the edge of pavement and the proposed building, a private garage, carport, uncovered paved parking pad or deck with at least 2 parking spaces may be built to the property line at the street Right-Of-Way, provided that it is located at least 8 feet from the nearest Side Lot Line of the front half of an adjacent lot, and also satisfies the requirements of subsection A.2.c. below.

c.    Restrictions on structures at reduced setbacks. Any building or structure approved for construction at the reduced Front Setbacks provided by this section shall satisfy the following:

1.    Approved by Department of Public Works. Any proposed construction requiring a building permit shall first have been approved by the Department of Public Works.

2.    Encroachment Permit. No structure or improvement shall be allowed within any City road right-of-way without first obtaining an encroachment permit from the Department of Public Works.

3.    Living Area. No living area shall be permitted above any garage or other structure located within the Front Setback area, except as provided in this section, unless specifically approved by the Zoning Administrator or the Planning Commission in response to a Site Development Review application and at a legally noticed public hearing. Rev. Ord. 27-08 (July 2008)

B.    Side and Rear Setback exceptions:

1.    Common wall development. Any two dwelling units and/or their accessory garages, may be constructed on adjoining lots without setbacks between them as shown on Figure 36-2 provided that:

a.    Waiver of one Side Setback. Waiver of the Side Setback requirement for one Side Yard has been authorized through, planned development, conditional use permit, or variance approval; and

b.    Agreement/Deed Restriction. A common wall or party wall agreement, deed restriction or other enforceable restriction has been recorded; and

c.    Side Setback. The Side Setbacks opposite the common wall property line are not less than two times the minimum width required by this Chapter, and

d.    Common Wall Construction. Common wall construction is in compliance with the Uniform Building Code.

Figure 36-2

COMMON WALL DEVELOPMENT

2.    Compensating Provision of Rear Yard. Notwithstanding the yard requirements of this Ordinance, a Rear Yard may have a depth of not less than 10 feet if that portion of the Rear Yard that is covered by a structure is compensated for by open areas within the same or adjacent yards on the same parcel that exceed Side and Rear Yard requirements by an area at least equal to the extent of the building coverage of the Rear Yard. Rev. Ord. 16-02 (October 2002)

3.    Compensating Provision of Side Yard. Notwithstanding the yard requirements of this Ordinance, a Side Yard may have a depth of not less than 5 feet if that portion of the Side Yard that is covered by a structure is compensated for by open areas within the same or adjacent yards on the same parcel that exceed Side and Rear Yard requirements by an area at least equal to the extent of the building coverage of the Side Yard. The Compensating Provision of Side Yard exception is not applicable to a Street Side Yard. Rev. Ord. 20-06 (November 2006)

4.    Dwellings in commercial or industrial zoning districts. A dwelling proposed in any commercial or industrial district shall provide Side and Rear Setbacks as required in the R-M Multiple Residential district (or as shown on a Conditional Use Permit or Planned Development Development Plan), except when the dwelling is located within a commercial or industrial building.

5.    Main Entrance on Side Yard. Where the main entrance to a dwelling is on a Side Yard, in the R-1 and R-2 zoning districts, the Side Yard shall have a minimum width of 15 feet. In the R-M zoning district, the Side Yard shall be 20 feet wide.

6.    Zero lot line development. A group of dwellings on adjoining lots may be designed and constructed so that they all abut one Side Lot Line provided that:

a.    Side Setback Requirement Modified. The Side Setback requirement has been modified for the entire block through planned development or conditional use permit approval; and,

b.    Subdivision Map/Deed Restriction. The modified setback requirements for the block are recorded as part of a subdivision map, deed restriction, or other enforceable restriction, and

c.    Corner Lot. The required Front Setback and Street Side Yard Setbacks are not eliminated or reduced on a corner lot, and

d.    Side Setbacks. Side Setbacks opposite the zero setback property line are not less than twice the minimum otherwise required by this chapter.

8.36.060 Projections Into Required Setbacks - Building Features And Equipment.

Three classes of projections into required setback are permitted:

A.    Landing, Uncovered Porch, Stairway. A landing place, or uncovered porch, and stairway leading thereto which serves a dwelling unit entrance not greater than six (6) feet above the ground level, may project into a required yard a distance not greater than three (3) feet.

B.    Building Wall. A building wall encroaching two feet or less into a required yard may be extended so as to continue the same building wall line but may not reduce the required yard to a dimension less than that previously provided.

C.    Building Roof, Wall Features, Building Equipment. Certain building roof and wall features and building equipment, including but not limited to chimneys, bay windows with a maximum width of 8 feet, cornices, eaves, canopies, landings, stairways, and similar architectural features (not including decks more than 30 inches above natural grade, porches, or other indoor or outdoor living areas), and equipment such as solar collectors, air conditioning equipment and swimming pool equipment. These classes of projections may extend into required setbacks as follows where consistent with the requirements of Sections 504 and Section 1710 of the Uniform Building Code:

1.    Front and Rear Setbacks. Such features and equipment may extend into any required Front or Rear Setback a maximum of 5 feet, provided that any equipment other than window-mounted air conditioners shall be screened from the view of the public road.

2.    Side Setbacks.

a.    5 feet or less. Where Side Setbacks are 5 feet or less, cornices, eaves, and canopies may extend into any required Side Setback a maximum of 2 1/2 feet, provided that no such feature shall be permitted within 3 feet of any Side Lot Line.

b.    More than 5 feet. Where Side Setbacks are more than 5 feet, such features and equipment listed above in Section 8.36.060.C may extend into any required Side Setback a maximum of 2 1/2 feet, provided that no such feature shall be permitted within 3 feet of any Side Lot Line.

3.    Enclosure of equipment required. For lots less than 5,000 square feet in size, mechanical equipment that generates noise (such as swimming pool, spa and air conditioning equipment) on the property shall be enclosed as necessary to reduce noise at the property line to a maximum of 50 dBA at any time.

For lots 5,000 square feet in size or larger, mechanical equipment that generates noise (such as swimming pool, spa and air conditioning equipment) when located within a required setback as allowed by this subsection, and within 10 feet of an existing or potential residence, or an existing paved patio area on adjoining property, shall be enclosed as necessary to reduce noise at the property line to a maximum of 50 dBA at any time. Rev. Ord. 16-02 (October 2002)

8.36.070 Interior Setbacks.

Setbacks between structures on the same site shall be as provided by this section.

A.    Residential uses:

1.    Separation between buildings. The minimum separation between detached dwellings or buildings containing multiple dwellings on the same site shall be as required by the Uniform Building Code or the conditions of approval of a Conditional Use Permit, Site Development Review, Variance, or Development Regulations of a Planned Development Development Plan approved for the project. Rev. Ord. 27-08 (July 2008)

2.    Interior courtyard. Two rows or groups of dwellings on the same site that are separated by an inner court that provides access to the dwellings shall be separated by a minimum of 20 feet.

3.    Separation Between Multi-Family Buildings in R-M Zoning District. Multi-family buildings in the R-M Zoning District shall be separated by a minimum distance of 20 feet. Any parking within the setback between multi-family buildings shall be in addition to the 20 foot setback. The 20 foot setback shall increase by 3 feet for every 10 feet that the height of the building exceeds 35 feet.

B.    Agricultural, commercial or industrial uses. As required by the Uniform Building Code.

8.36.080 Lot Lines.

Lot lines required by this Chapter shall be located as shown in Figure 36-4, and as follows:

A.    Lot Line. Any boundary of a lot. Where adjacent to a public right-of-way a lot line shall be the Street Right-Of-Way Line shown on a recorded subdivision map or, when established, a Future Right-Of-Way Line. Where adjacent to a private right-of-way, a lot line shall be the boundary of the private right-of-way. The classifications of lot lines are:

1.    Front. The line separating the parcel from the Street Right-Of-Way Line, Future Right-Of-Way Line, or boundary of the private right-of-way. On corner lots, the Front Lot Line shall be the shortest lot line abutting a street in residential zoning districts and the longest lot line abutting a street in commercial/industrial zoning districts. If the lot lines on a corner lot are equal in length, the Front Lot Line shall be determined by the Director of Community Development. On a through lot, the Front Lot Line shall be the lot line abutting the street providing the primary access to the lot.

2.    Interior. Any lot line not abutting a street.

3.    Rear. A lot line, not intersecting a Front Lot Line, which is most distant from the most closely parallel to the Front Lot Line. In the case of an irregularly shaped lot or a lot bounded by only three lot lines, a line within the lot having a length of 10 feet, parallel to and most distant from the Front Lot Line shall be interpreted as the Rear Lot Line for the purpose of determining required yards, setbacks, and other provisions of this Title.

4.    Side. Any lot line which is not a Front Lot Line or a Rear Lot Line.

5.    Street Side. A lot line intersecting a Front Lot Line, Rear Lot Line, or Side Lot Line, which is also either the Street Right-Of-Way Line, Future Right-Of-Way Line, or boundary of the private right-of-way.

Figure 36-4

8.36.090 Yards.

Yards required by this Chapter shall be located on lots as shown in Figure 36-1, and as follows:

A.    Yard. An open space on a lot, other than a court, unobstructed and unoccupied from the ground upward, except as permitted by this Ordinance. The classifications of yards are:

1.    Front. An area extending across the full width of the lot between the Front Lot Line and a structural setback line parallel thereto. The determination of Front Yards for corner lots shall be as described for Front Lot Line above.

2.    Side. An area extending from the required Front Yard to the required Rear Yard and from the Side Lot Line to a structural setback line parallel thereto.

3.    Rear. An area extending across the full width of the lot between the Rear Lot Line and a structural setback line parallel thereto.

4.    Street Side. An area extending from the required Front Yard to the Rear Lot Line and from the Street Side Lot Line to a structural setback line parallel thereto.

8.36.100 Maximum Lot Coverage

A.    Applicability of coverage regulations. Maximum lot coverage regulations are intended to establish the maximum lot area that may be covered with buildings and structures. Buildings and structures include all land covered by principal buildings, garages and carports, accessory structures, (with the exception of one 120 square foot accessory structure, which shall be exempt from the coverage regulations) covered decks and gazebos, and other enclosed and covered areas; but not standard roof overhangs, cornices, eaves, uncovered decks, swimming pools, paved areas such as walkways, driveways, patios, uncovered parking areas or roads.

B.    Computation of coverage. All areas of coverage are computed in terms of net lot area and at ground level. Rev. Ord. 20-06 (November 2006); Ord. 16-02 (October 2002)

8.36.110 Height Limits and Exceptions

A.    Applicability of height limits. Height limits for buildings and structures are established by Chapter 8.12, Zoning Districts and Permitted Uses of Land; other provisions of this Title; Chapter 8.36, Development Regulations; Chapter 8.72, Landscaping and Fencing Regulations for fence height limits; and Chapter 8.84, Sign Regulations, for sign height limits. No building or structure shall be constructed or altered to exceed the height limits established by this Title, except as otherwise provided by this Chapter.

B.    Measurement of height. The height limits for buildings and structures established by this Chapter or other provisions of this Title shall be measured as the vertical distance from the highest point of the structure to the average of the highest and lowest points where the exterior walls touch the natural grade, as shown in Figure 36-5.

FIGURE 36-5,

MEASUREMENT OF HEIGHT

C.    Exceptions to height limits. The height limits for buildings and structures established by this Chapter are subject to the following exceptions:

1.    Public and quasi-public buildings and structures. In a zoning district with a height limit of less than 75 feet, public and quasi-public buildings, communications equipment buildings, schools, churches, hospitals, and other institutions permitted in the zoning district, may be erected to a maximum height of 75 feet, provided that all required setbacks shall be increased by one foot for each foot of height that the building exceeds the normal height limit established by the zone.

2.    Residential exception - Sloping lots. The maximum height allowed for a dwelling may be increased when the average natural slope of a proposed building envelope is 15 percent or more, as follows:

Building Site Slope

Max. Allowed Height Increase

15 percent

5 feet

22.5 percent

10 feet

30 percent or more

15 feet

The maximum allowed height for a dwelling on a site with slope between 15 and 22.5 percent may be increased over the five feet specified above by the same proportion that the actual site slope exceeds 15 percent. The maximum allowed height for a dwelling on a site with slope between 22.5 and 30 percent may be increased over the 10 feet specified above by the same proportion that the actual site slope exceeds 22.5 percent.

3.    Exceptions for specific types of structures:

a.    Architectural features, mechanical equipment. Chimneys, vents, and other architectural or mechanical appurtenances on buildings may be a maximum of 15 percent higher than the height limit of the applicable zone.
