A. The front setback for site areas located in the Central Area of the city shall be the setback as established in the records for each site area maintained by the city's community development department, unless that setback is not established in the city's records, or it is zero. Prior to amendment of this section, a zero setback was interpreted to mean that no setback was established in the city's records.
B. If the front setback for a particular site area is zero or is not established in the city's records, then the front setback for that site area shall be determined as follows:
1. For developed site areas, the front setback shall be the lesser of either:
a. The distance between the front lot line and the closest element of the existing primary residence; or
b. The average of the front setbacks of the other site areas on the same side of the street in the same block.
2. For undeveloped lots, the front setback shall be the average of the front setbacks of the other site areas on the same side of the street in the same block. (Ord. 85-O-1953, eff. 7-4-1985; amd. Ord. 92-O-2147, eff. 9-4-1992; Ord. 95-O-2239, eff. 7-7-1995; Ord. 07-O-2512, eff. 5-11-2007)
