Let me take a look
1. Determine the building C/L
2. Project that location back out to the top of curb location. This will be the base elevation to use to measure building height within 10’ of the property line.
3. To take other height measurements of the building, you need to use the average ground elevation measured perpendicular to your building C/L [(low side + high side)/2].
4. Elevations under the building will be based on the straight line that connects to two ground elevations discussed in my item #3 above.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
1. That is not correct. The title of Section 260 is "HEIGHT LIMITS: MEASUREMENT".
2. That jog in the dashed line is either the 10' limit from the property line or there is a step in the foundation at that point.
3. It would be the any part of the structure within 10' of the property line. For example, if the face of the building is only 5' from the property line thne you would continue another 5' and look to see if the roof height at the that point is higher than the face of the building and then use that.
Please see Part C in the link below:
You appear to be correct. In my research from one of your earlier questions, I remember somewhere that it talked about the "highest" part of the structure that is within 10' of the property line, not just the closest.
I will to a quick search to see if I can find the section that I remember.
I was using Item #2 in the following link (1st sentence):
