Sec. 23-110. - Definitions.
Public roadway means a public street, alley, road, right-of-way, or other public way, including paved and unpaved portions of the right-of-way.
A development located in a planned development zoning district may be approved with one (1) or more private roads when:
The road will have direct access onto a public street;
The road is not necessary or planned to serve or provide for traffic or drainage outside the development;
The road is so routed or designed so as to discourage through traffic; and
The road will provide for adequate access, the safe movement of traffic, drainage and generally serves as an adequate alternative to a public street.
When the private road will serve more than one (1) lot, the developer shall submit to the planning and zoning commission for approval a written and binding declaration, to be recorded prior to the acceptance of any public improvements, establishing an owner's association or similar legal entity which will have:
The legal authority to maintain and exercise control over the road; and
The power to compel contributions from owners within the development to cover their proportionate shares of the cost associated with maintenance of the road.
Private roads shall conform to the design specifications set forth in appendix A-4 of Ordinance No. 88-103, which appendix is adopted by reference and included in this Code the same as if set out at length in this section, unless the road is the sole access to the development, in which case the private road shall conform to the design specifications for public streets.
Where any parking areas or spaces are to be used along or adjacent to the private road, the parking areas and spaces shall be designated and constructed in accordance with the design standards applicable to parking lots so that the parking areas and spaces will not interfere with the use of any public streets.
For the purpose of this section, a "private road" shall mean any open way used for vehicular traffic, not dedicated to public use and not part of a parking lot, designed and used to provide vehicular access to a development or lot.
