Question. does anyone have a driveway next to an easement in Park Ridge? The garage at the house we are in was built more recently, but there is no driveway past the sidewalk to the street. There is an easement directly next to where we would want the driveway added.

We recently built a new garage next to an easement. We had to move the garage over to give the new required access to the easement, but we put all new cement around and under the wires/poles (to the right of the garage) and we extended the driveway further to the right than it used to be (so it is under the wires and near the easement). Adding cement around/bear an easement shouldn't be a problem; however, we ran into issues with insurance for the act of putting in the cement/driveway between the sidewalk and the street. We had to get more insurance temporarily if anything happened during the installation/cement pouring and ground leveling, we were liable since the city wasn't doing it.

One of our driveways is adjacent to an easement. We didn't build it this way, so I'm not sure that it's required, but our neighbor's driveway and the easement go all the way to the street, and our driveway stops at the sidewalk. It sort of requires parallel parking into our own driveway from the shared drive on the easement.
