If you select "Parcel Boundaries/SDAT Data" it will show that the land directly in front of your house is the same property as Uniontown Road. So I think what might be happening here is the land is publicly owned but the shared driveway is not publicly maintained. Have you looked at your property description to see where your property boundaries are?

I did some further looking and it looks like as the owner of the lot you have the right to use the road, but you don't own it.

I am a retired right of way agent with 30 years experience (State and County levels) dealing with these types of issues and they can be very tricky. Mvee is correct, start with your deed and the deeds of your neighbors abutting the strip and find out if any of them make reference to it - first step.

Sorry, I'm totally ignorant on how to do this. Where can I find a property description?

"The land is publicly owned but the shared driveway is not publicly maintained." What exactly does that mean? Seems like it's this grey area then.

Your property description is in your deed. Since this is a platted subdivision, then it will say something like Lot One, Bosley Property and then it will reference the book and page number for that plat. What you are looking for in your deed is a description of the use of the private road. A privately maintained road is simply one that is not maintained by the county. I would need to read the details on that one. I am a little concerned by all of the personal info you have published to the world here. Maybe that's just my own paranoia. Posting the property as No Trespassing makes it a criminal offence for people to do so but if the county does own it, then you may not have the right to post it. Send me a PM and I'll look a few things up for you.

If the county owned the road then they are responsible for maintaining it and making sure that ingress egress is maintained. Same as where as I live, it’s on a dirt road off of a paved county road. When we contacted the county about taking over the road they explained that it would have to meet current county standards. That would have cost us well over 50 k. We take care of it our selves.

Plats.net

(and)

Mdlandrec.net are the sites I use most often. I also use MerlinMD when I want to use map over-lays.

After reading the OPs multiple posts I think he's confused about what he owns vs what he and others may or may not have access to.

Then he wants to confront people with firearms. This looks like something that will end up on yahoo news.
