Minimize the visual presence of residential garages

Antioch, IL
Minimize the visual presence of residential garages

Attached garages that are entered from the side of the house or detached garages that are set back from the front of the house can minimize or eliminate the impact of a garage-dominated front facade. Reducing the visibility of the garage can improve the curb appeal of an individual home while reducing the visibility of the garages on multiple houses can add value and create a sense of place along an entire street.

View the following links to see how the new zoning ordinance (DRAFT) addresses garages:

Garage height >>
Garage frontage >>
Garage door size limits >>
% side/rear-loaded in new development >>
Garage location >>

Lot sizes determine garage placement.

I don’t personally feel that this needs to be regulated, unless there are certain historical districts in the Village where the master plan is guiding you to do it
