Legal Question

Asked on: 8/06/09, 10:50 pm

I Purchased land in a subdivision 2 years ago and built a house on the land. the land has a stream that runs through it which was part of the reason I purchased it. Last year I found out that the local govt was planning on making a walking path and public area along the stream. This path will cut through the middle of my property and will also have a fence. I have looked at my land surveys and drawings and there was never any indication that the town had a right of way through my property. They are talking about starting the path and I was wondering if there was anything I could do to keep the town out of my backyard.
