Can I build a garage on my property?

Accessory buildings may only be built in the side or rear yard established by the location of the house to the front lot line, no closer than 10 feet from the rear and side yard property lines. On lots where the principal building is set back greater than 100 feet from the front lot line an accessory building may be constructed in the front yard provided a minimum of a 100 foot front yard setback is maintained.
