Description:

Easements describe the rights to use some part of a property for a specific purpose.  This data layer shows the boundaries of city-owned and other public easements, typically for water, sewer, or storm water pipes.

Features and Attributes:


This feature class originally consisted of lines showing the extent of easements. It was necessary to show the property parcel lines in order to see the entire easement area. They were converted to polygons so the entire area of an easement can be represented with one layer.  


The type field indicates the purpose of each easement.
