How do I determine what is my front yard for setback purposes?

The Front Yard is the streetside or the access side.  Lot Line, Front is defined in Chapter 11 as follows:

LOT LINE, FRONT means the property boundary line dividing a lot from the street. If no street, or more than one street, abuts the lot, then the front lot line means the property boundary line from which road access is obtained.”
