Zoning and Setbacks

Whether you're constructing a brand new building or adding on to an existing one, you'll need to consider the zoning of your property.  Every property in the city is assigned a zoning designation, and each zoning designation has specific requirements that new construction needs to meet.

The zoning of your property will determine your project's setbacks (i.e. distance from property lines), height, and more.  Click here to find out what zone your property is in.

Once you know the zoning designation of your property, you can refer to the Cottonwood Heights zoning ordinance to see specific setbacks and development requirements of your zone.  Click here to see the zoning ordinance.
