Is there a way to identify the "front" of a parcel based on the address and then offset that by a certain distance? For example, the properties in the image in pink all have addresses for the main road (Center Street) but the properties circled in red have their addresses to the side street. I want to be able to use a tool that will provide a polygon that will identify the area of the setback based on the address. Any ideas?

I am working on a project where I am taking public data (sourced from the town, county, state and other organizations i.e. FEMA, census, etc.). I live in Florida and due to sunshine laws, this info is readily available. If I take this project and turn it into a business, will there be any legal issues with me using this data? Basically, in looking online, I am finding other companies that offer services that seem to use the same data (i.e. parcel data) and I would assume that they are not doing the primary research to determine this data. I just want to make sure there is not legal issue for me to do the same. Most data that I am finding that I need is available to the public. I understand that some info is not claiming to be 100% accurate and I understand that. There is some data that I am generating on my own, which will correlate to the data from public sources. Any help would be appreciated - if I need to pay for the data, or legally add disclaimers, I can do that, I am just trying to get prepared moving forward.
