Right of Way Information


How to use this information


The street right-of-way (ROW) information can be used to:
  • Determine the location of the property line at the front of your property facing the street.
  • Locate underground utilities in the street if they are referenced from the property line.

The information provided includes the width of the street, distance of the property line from the curb face, width of sidewalk, width of parkway (if any), and distance (if any) from back edge of sidewalk to the front property line (see typical street cross-section diagram and legend below).

This information is useful in calculating height and front setback restrictions based on the City's Zoning Ordinance . Please note that side yard setback restrictions based on side yard property lines cannot be determined from this information, but rather requires the services of a licensed surveyor to locate the side yard property lines based on city survey records and existing survey monuments.

Choose the street for which you want to obtain the Right-of-Way (ROW) information:
