You can find zoning on the Municipal Service District’s interactive map. Just enter your address and you’ll be given more information on your parcel. Note that this will only return information for Unincorporated Salt Lake County, and the Metro Townships within the county. For information within other cities you’ll need to contact that municipality for zoning information
Once you know what zone your property is classified as, you can check your county or township’s ordinance to find out what is allowed. Zoning will be title 19 in each code and you can look up your zone’s uses in its specific chapter.
Those will be listed in Title 19 of each of the County and Township Ordinances under each specific zone. There are many factors that can impact your setback however, so you may want to call our office with your parcel number/address and zone information so we can further assist you.
In most cases, setbacks are measured from the property line to the edge of the structure.
Any records regarding your recorded plats would be on file with the Salt Lake County Recorder. If the lot has been surveyed since recording you can contact the Salt Lake County Surveyor’s Office for any of those records.
Accessory buildings need to be entirely in the rear yard and 6' away from the home. Accessory buildings do have a minimum setback of 1' from the rear and side yards and a 14' height restriction. For each additional foot you move away from the property lines the height restriction may be increased by 1' up to a maximum of 20' in height.
Yes you can, but you will still need to meet minimum setback requirements. These vary by zone and jurisdiction. Please contact us to ensure you have the correct setbacks before submitting for a building permit.
Due to the geographical and geological constraints in the Canyon areas (FCOZ), each individual parcel in the area is unique. This being the case all development requests are looked at as singular projects. Prior to purchasing and/or attempting to build on these properties you should contact our office for information on your specific property.
If you would like copies of your property deeds, any subdivision plats with dimensions, or previous documents related to your property you'll want to contact the Salt Lake County Recorder.
