Rights of Way
What Is a Right of Way (ROW)?
A City ROW is a strip of land that is directly behind a public
road which may or may not have a curb and gutter. It is
approximately a distance of 11 feet from the edge of the
pavement. For example, most water meters are located in
the ROW close to the street.
The seam of a concrete driveway approach is also a good
indication of the depth of a right of way and it is the
responsibility of each property owner or resident to maintain
the portion of the right of way on his or her property that
requires mowing or sweeping.
