Can I build a carport in the front of my house?

Carports are allowed to be built in the front setback, or in the exterior side setback on corner lots. However, if being constructed within the first 5 foot from the property line or from the side exterior it will require a conditional use permit from the Planning and Zoning Commission. As part of this process notification letters are sent to owners of neighboring properties within 200 feet of the applicant’s property. The Commission will look at neighborhood responses when making a decision to approve or deny a particular request for a carport. It is a good idea to also check for possible deed restrictions. Some subdivisions may prohibit them. Contact the Planning Division for application and fee information.
