I am worried about winter driving on the mountain.
Do you have any tips?
If you are new to High Knob, you must realize by now that driving the steep slopes in snow and ice requires a different level of preparedness. Studded snow tires and four-wheel drive are an absolute must, particularly in the high elevations.
Why is High Knob called a Sanitary District?
Is there a map of our district?
The term "Sanitary District" actually has nothing to do with sanitation. It is a government term. There is a State level government, a County level government, & then then another level down is a "Sanitary District". We are not part of the town of Front Royal, but are our own district. Because of the way the government is set up, we pay dues to High Knob twice a year in the form of a tax on our Warren County Tax Bill.
Is there a way to find out my property boundaries, tax value, & who owns the properties around me?

If I want build an addition on my house, put up a shed or fence or change my driveway, are there any regulations concerning this? What about if I need to replace a tree?
Anyone wishing to change the outside of their house or to erect a fence on his or her property must submit a request (see links) to the Architectural Review Committee for review. Also, check with Warren County to find out if permits are needed. (see link)
Please also see link to the right to check out the approved tree species list for replacing a tree.
The Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code requires permits for all new construction, additions, alterations/remodeling, demolition, and change of uses. Driveway dimensions are also specific and are outlined in the "Driveway Dimensions" Policy. (see link)
