What is a "right of way" ?

Right-of-Way (ROW) is the city-owned strip of land from the edge of the street back a specified distance. Its purpose is to allow the city to build and maintain the street, curb, gutter and storm sewers. This land is the responsibility of the landowner but the city has the right to determine what takes place there. Property records may need to be reviewed to determine the exact dimension since the depth of a ROW varies from location to location.
