In other words, the subdivision doesn't end at the fence or the sidewalk. Accurately "ungluing" the area from the roadway means mapping the curb.


Is the road publicly owned, generally accessible, or is it private land and the access is or could be regulated on an individual basis if the owner wishes so?
