            (a)        Over a paved driveway;

            (b)        Abutting the dwelling to which it is accessory;

            (c)        Unenclosed, except for the one side abutting the dwelling;

            (d)        No more than 25 feet in total length, both within and outside the front setback; and

            (e)        No wider than 12 feet for a single garage and/or driveway or no wider than 24 feet for a double garage and/or driveway.

(2)        No more than one carport shall be permitted for each dwelling unit.

Special Exception


(5)        Carports, as that term is defined in § 159.002, may be allowed in the front yard setback as a special exception to this chapter, as provided herein, subject to the following restrictions:

            (a)        Carports shall not be erected or located closer than five feet inclusive of eaves from the right-of-way line of a public or private street.

            (b)        Carports shall not be located or erected closer to the side property line than the applicable side yard setback or the dwelling to which it is accessory, whichever is less.

If a special exception is requested the following will apply:

A special exception from the Board of Adjustments is required if you plan to construct a carport in your front yard beyond the building line.  If the plan is to build a carport in the front setback, please provide a current and certified list of all recorded property owners within a 300’ radius of the entire boundary of your property.  This current and certified list must be obtained from either a bonded abstractor or the County Assessor of Oklahoma County.

A special exception application fee of $625.00 plus notice of public hearing fee of $150.00 will be required at the time of application.
