How do I know where my property begins?
Most right-of-ways in residential streets are fifty feet wide. The cartway (that portion of the street which is paved) is normally twenty four feet wide. Therefore if the cartway is centered in the right-of-way, there is a thirteen foot wide strip on either side of the cartway between the pavements edge and the property line. This can vary considerably however. Your property survey will show the distance from the front of your house to the Village right-of-way.
