Right-of-Way (ROW) is the City-owned strip of land from the edge of the street back about 3 to 10 feet. Its purpose is to allow the city to build and maintain the street, curb and gutter, storm sewers and possibly underground utilities.
This land is the responsibility of the landowner but the City has the right to determine what takes place there. A right-of-way may include curbs, sidewalks and utilities. Since the depth of a ROW varies from location to location, a survey needs to be conducted or property records reviewed to determine the exact dimension of any given right-of-way.
