Property Lines

Where is my property line?

On most properties in the City, the true property line is a certain distance behind the back of the sidewalk or curb. To find the true property line, a professional land surveyor must survey the property. However, a good estimate of your property line can be determined if you can locate your property line pins that are located at corners of your lot. They may be buried in the ground to a certain depth. A metal detector may aid in the location of your property pins, but over time they may become more difficult to find. Visit the Scott County Auditor’s plat room for lot dimensions and street right-of-way widths.

Civil disputes over property lines, such as the location of a fence or wall at adjoining private properties, is not within the enforcement authority of the City to resolve.
