What are the zoning setbacks for my property?

A setback is the distance between a structure and a property line, a natural feature, a road right-of-way, and other improvements. In all residential and rural zoning districts, setbacks are required from all property lines and roadways.

View the Zoning Setback Brochure (PDF).

Setbacks vary with zoning but can also be affected by further restrictions recorded on subdivision maps.

The front property line is the side containing the road right-of-way or easement. The rear property line is the line opposite the front line.

Reading the appropriate Sections relating to the appropriate Zone of Middletown Zoning Code can assist in determining what the setback requirements for a property in a particular zone are:
