§ 153.062  LOCATION OF REQUIRED YARDS ON IRREGULAR LOTS.
   (A)   Generally.  The location of required front, side and rear yards on irregularly shaped lots shall be determined by the Administrator. The determination will be based on the spirit and intent of this chapter to achieve and appropriate spacing and location of buildings and structures on individual lots.
   (B)   Front yards and rear yards on corner lots.
      (1)   On corner lots, the front yard shall be measured perpendicular from the street lot line having the shortest linear footage. If both street lot lines have equal linear footage and no principal structure is located on the lot, the property owner shall determine the location of the front yard. On lots having equal frontage and there is a principal structure located on the lot the front yard shall be based on the architectural orientation of the house. Once the front yard is determined the rear yard shall be the yard opposite the front yard.
      (2)   A graphic example of this is as follows:

   (C)   Front yards and rear yards on through lots.
      (1)   On through lots, the required front and rear yards shall each equal or exceed the greater of either the required front or rear yard setback that would normally be applied in that zoning district. For example, if a through lot were located in a zoning district which normally required a 35-foot front setback and a 25-foot rear setback, both front and rear setbacks would have to equal or exceed 35 feet. For the purpose of placing accessory structures, however, the rear yard shall be deemed to be the yard opposite the street-side yard which the architectural front of the building faces. For the purpose of placing a principal residence, the Administrator shall require the architectural front of the building to be oriented similar to residences on either side.
