Front Setback For a Structure: In determining the placement of a structure on a lot, the front building setback line shall be measured from the future right-of-way line as provided in the map of Road Right-of-Way Widths within the Charter Township of Orion Master Plan or from the acquired highway easement whichever is greater. This provision relates solely to the measurement made for locating a structure on a lot and is not intended to limit use of the property in other respects.
