What is a right-of-way?

The standard right-of-way (ROW) in the Town of McCandless is generally 50 feet The right-of-way extends 25 feet to each side from the center of the paved road, assuming the road is in the center of the right-of-way. Older roads may not have the same width and therefore the ROW would be calculated differently. The only way to be absolutely sure of the location of the right-of-way is to have your property surveyed and staked.

Please view the town code for the most accurate information regarding objects in the ROW such as temporary signs, shrubs, and foliage.
