- Driveways: The minimum width of an easement for driveway purposes is 30 feet.
Pedestrian Facilities: A minimum of a 10 foot easement is required, but may need more depending on location and use.
Private Roads: A 30-foot width will work for a private roadway with up to 6 users. Beyond 6 users, the width of the easement widens to 50 feet and 60 feet depending on the number of users and zoned land use (rural or urban).
Stormwater, Sanitary Sewer, and Water Lines: The easements are typically a 20-foot minimum. However, the purpose and use will establish the width. Some widths may be less than 20 feet.
Other Utilities: Power, cable, telephone, etc., require a minimum of a 10-foot easement, but may need more depending on the location of the easement.
The above widths may be used for submittal of a proposal to the Engineering Division. Please check with Engineering or the appropriate agency for exact widths before recording any easements.
