What is a right-of-way?

The standard ROW in the Town of McCandless is generally 50 ft. 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.
