Countryside considers revision to front yard setback code
COUNTRYSIDE – The Plan Commission is considering making a recommendation to change to the city's 30-foot front yard setback standard based on varying lot sizes throughout the city.
The commission discussed a revision to the city's zoning code at its Sept. 10 meeting, tabling a decision on a recommendation to the City Council until its next meeting Oct. 1.
The city's zoning code currently requires that front yards extend at least 30 feet from the street to the front of the house. On blocks with larger lot sizes, though, houses are often set back 50 or more feet, and there is interest from those areas in increasing the setback standard. That would prevent residents from building new houses that are closer to the street than neighboring ones.
