(A) In a residential district, no part of an accessory building may be located closer to a side lot line than ten feet, no closer to the front line than the rear line of the principal building, and no closer to the rear lot line than ten feet. However, whenever a rear or side lot line is subject to an easement, no structure may be erected on the easement.
(B) All minimum lot sizes will be subject to state and county Health Department regulations regarding accommodation of septic systems per each individual lot. Lot sizes in these cases shall be governed by Health Department requirements and increased accordingly regardless of the minimum size specified by this chapter.
(C) In any district, an accessory building may not be erected before the principal building, except on a farm.
(D) In the case of a through lot, the area at each end of the lot between the setback line and the middle of the street shall be treated as if it were part of the front yard.
(E) Where an existing parcel of land with a residential dwelling thereon is divided by deed into two or more parcels, all parcels must meet the requirements of this chapter unless the variance has been obtained for a division to a lesser parcel.
(F) In the case of an approved subdivision, a platted lot thereof may not be further subdivided for residential purposes other than to add to the square footage of adjoining residential lots, unless a variance has been obtained from the Commission.
(G) No outside storage is permitted in a residential area unless it is screened by vegetation or a structure so as to block the view of the storage area from the public right-of-way and adjacent properties. This section does not apply to outside storage necessary for the construction of a home or other structure.
(H) No radio towers or TV antenna towers in any district may exceed the height of 75 feet as measured from the ground level as the base of the tower, whether freestanding or attached to a building. This provision does not apply to communication towers that are structurally regulated by federal or state regulations.
