- Accessory structures (detached garages & sheds) are subject to different setback and size requirements but are included in the “Floor Area Ratio” and “Lot Coverage” calculations as noted.
- All other accessory uses (recreational equipment, pools, hot tubs, etc.) follow different setback and size regulations.
