How are property setbacks determined?
Setbacks are determined from the existing or proposed road right-of-way for the property. Existing road right-of-ways are available on the Cabarrus County GIS Site and can be measured using the measuring tool. Proposed right-of-ways are identified in the Cabarrus Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization CTP Index. Be sure to check both these resources when designing your site. Keep in mind that the right-of-way area typically extends beyond the paved area for existing roads. The edge of the pavement is rarely the edge of the right-of-way.
