What are my building setback requirements from my lot lines?
Each parcel has a land use designation (zoning), and the setbacks vary according to that designation. General setback information is defined by land use designation in Table 110.406.05.1, Standards, in the Development Code.

For more information, see Division Four - Development Standards, Article 406, Building Placement Standards, of the Washoe County Development Code. To go to the Development Code home page, click here.

However, there are many additional factors that come into play, such as if there are access easements on the lot, the shape of your lot, and the like. Call our Development Information Counter at 775.328.6100 and speak to a planner for specific setback information for your property.
