Where are "setbacks" measured from/to?

Setbacks are measured from property lines to the foundation/wall/porch post of a building or other structure. Because the location of property lines cannot be determined from sight alone, the City requires a Plat of Survey prepared by a surveyor to determine setback dimensions.
