How large can I build a garage?
Our Ordinance, #96-3, governs garages. It states that garage size is predicated on lot size. An attached garage can be 7.5% of the lot size, not to exceed 1,200 square feet in an R-1 district and 1,000 square feet in an R-2 district. A detached garage can be 7% of the lot size not to exceed 1,100 square feet in an R-1 district and 900 square feet in an R-2 district.
Detached garages must be at least 5 feet off of side and rear property lines and cannot be built on an easement. They are also limited to 15 feet in height (to the peak of the roof).
