Generally, easements establish a portion of private property where someone other than the landowner has legal property rights. Utility easements provide space for utilities such as water, sewer, electricity, and cable. Drainage easements allow water to flow to an area designated for detention.
Access easements allow public access across or to a particular area. No structures are allowed to be built over an easement, including swimming pools. For easement locations on a particular property, call the Planning Department at 325-676-6237.
