What are the County design requirements for residential driveways?

Driveways must be constructed at least 3.5 feet inside the residential property line, and not closer than 18 feet to driveways on other properties. Residential driveway widths are 10 foot minimum and 20 foot maximum. Residential driveways shall not be constructed in front of the house; instead the driveway must be offset to the side of the house, in accordance with County Code Subtitle 27. The slopes shall be constructed no flatter than 1.5% and no steeper than 12.5% in accordance with County Code Subtitle 27-560.
