Can I build a structure or a fence within the limits of an easement?
No. Homeowners have the right to use and enjoy the lands within the easement, as long as the enjoyment does not interfere with the rights of the City for the easement. Homeowners may not, without the prior written consent of the City, build or place any buildings, structures, fence foundations, pavement or other obstructions of any nature whatsoever that would prevent the City from any of its rights according to the purposes of the easement. If any obstructions have already been placed within an easement of the City, we may access and remove any obstructions and shall not be responsible for any damages to the homeowner property within the easement, when necessary for the City to do so.Categories: Easements, Municipal Works
