What else do I have to consider when considering building or adding onto an existing structure?

The City of Becker enforces building setbacks via the City's Zoning Ordinance. Setbacks establish how far a building must be from the property line to ensure adequate light and air are able to pass between structures. This also ensures access to the entire structure for emergency purposes.


To find out what the setback requirements are for your particular property, please call 763-200-4245 or email the

Community Development Planning Department.
