The setback might be inspired by thoughts such as;if you want a tower, place it 
in your yard close to your activities and dwelling and not out at the lot line 
next to your neighbors.JIM-W4QBQ

?Most zoning ordinances stipulate a setback requirement for a tower.  Around 
here, the setback from the nearest property line must be equal to or greater 
than 75% of the total height of the tower.?

And what?s the sense of that?  Why isn?t the top 25% dangerous?  Actually, it?s 
likely the most dangerous.  It?s moving fastest and has that big ol? antenna 
antenna on it."

Consider yourself lucky, around here, Central Illinois, the setback for my 
semi-rural tower was 110% of the height.
