Can I have a garage? If so, how big?

Once you have established your property zone, you will go to Sec. 27-300 to determine placement and setback requirements for attached and detached garages.  In Sec. 27-1008 (D) you will find Detached Accessory Residential Structures. Detached buildings for accessory uses greater than 200 square feet in size shall not exceed the principal building first story gross floor area on the lot or 1,500 square feet, whichever is less.
