What is the "Town Right of Way"?

Do you know where your property line is? Many property owners believe their property begins where their lawn meets the road, but in reality the Town right of way extends a distance beyond the edge of pavement. In most cases, property line issues come to light when a property owner tries to erect a fence, stone wall or basketball hoop on what they believe is their property. Physical obstructions in the Town right of way (with the exception of utility poles, Town signs, mailboxes, etc.) are prohibited.
