§ 153.183  YARDS.
   (A)   For the purpose of computing front yard dimensions the measurements shall be taken from the nearest point of the front wall of the building to the street line, provided, however, that if an official plan line has been established for the street, the measurement shall be taken from the point of building to such official plan line, except that certain architectural features hereinafter shall not be considered in making such measurements, to wit:
      (1)   Cornices, canopies, coves, or other architectural features may extend into any required yard a distance not to exceed three feet.
      (2)   Fire escapes, landing places and uncovered porches may extend into the required yard a distance not to exceed six feet but in no case may they be so located that access to the rear of the property is impaired.
      (3)   Solid fences, hedges and screen planting not to exceed three feet in height may extend to the property line in the front yard.
      (4)   Solid fences, hedges, and screen planting may be established or permitted to grow in any side or rear yard to the height allowed in the zoning district in which the property is located.
      (5)   Fireplaces may extend into any required yard a distance not to exceed two feet.
   (B)   Notwithstanding the minimum front and side yard requirements for the various districts, as provided in this chapter, no structure (excluding, however, open wire fences, electroliers without attached advertising signs, utility poles, solid fences or screen planting not more than three feet in height, and trees in excess of three feet in height, provided that the branches at maturity are not closer than eight feet to the ground) shall be located closer to the highway center line than as indicated, on the following specified highways:
      (1)   Patterson Road, from the westerly city limits to its intersection with Callander Avenue: 75 feet.  The right-of-way on the section of Patterson Road shall be 110 feet.
      (2)   Callander Avenue, from its intersection with Patterson Road to its intersection with Atchison Street: 70 feet.  The right-of-way on the section of Callander Avenue shall be 100 feet.
      (3)   Claus Road: 70 feet.  The right-of-way for Claus Road shall be 50 feet. Where a specific plan line has been established it shall be used as the ultimate right-of-way.
      (4)   That portion of Roselle Avenue which is presently in the city limits: 53 feet.  The right-of-way for the portion of Roselle Avenue which is now in the city limits shall be 66 feet.  The HIGHWAY CENTER LINE, as that phrase is used in this subsection, refers to the following described center line:
   COMMENCING at the quarter section corner common to Section 25 and Section 26, Township 2 South, Range 11 East, Mount Diablo Meridian, thence easterly along the center line of Patterson Road, a distance of three feet to the proposed center line of Roselle Avenue, the point being the true point of beginning of this description.
   Thence South 0° 12' West parallel to and 3 feet at right angles to the westerly line of Section 25 a distance of 1854.00 feet more or less to the existing city limits (1974) of the city.
(Ord. 87-11, passed 7-27-87)
   (C)   No mechanical equipment, including pool equipment, that is permanently fixed shall be permitted to occupy any of the required setback areas.
(Ord. 88-14, passed 11-28-88)
   (D)   Minimum setbacks for multi-family buildings, commercial uses and industrial uses shall be as follows:
      (1)   The minimum setback of a building adjacent to a public right-of-way shall be 15 feet and shall be determined by a 60° vertical angle beginning at the edge of the right-of-way and extending onto the property, as illustrated in the following table.
      (2)   The minimum setback of a building from a property line shall be 15 feet and shall be determined by a 60° vertical angle beginning at the property line and extending onto the property, as illustrated in the following table.
      (3)   The minimum setback of a building adjacent to residential districts shall be 25 feet and shall be determined by a 60° vertical angle beginning at the property line and extending onto the property, as illustrated in the following table.  In determining the height of the building for the purpose of this section, the level of the ground shall be deemed to be the level of the ground of the adjacent residential district. (Please note that additional setbacks are required for the height of the building when adjacent to residential areas.)
