Enhancements to your property along the roadside need to be placed far enough back from the road to insure that they will not become a sight-line obstruction for your driveway, your neighbor’s, an intersection, or traffic control devise. Please remember the town does have a right of way extending from five to 25 feet beyond the road edge on all town roads. Trees should not be planted within this zone. This area must also be kept clear of fixed obstructions such as fences or stone walls.
Please call the Public Works Department to obtain this setback measurement for your particular road before doing landscaping or major plantings in this area.
