Private streets can be troublesome
When purchasing a new home, it is your responsibility to find out who owns area roads and who will maintain them. There are more than 500 miles of privately owned and maintained roads in OKC and not all of them are clearly marked or located behind a gated entrance. Private road maintenance and upkeep is the sole responsibility of the neighbors adjoining the private streets. City crews are not allowed to fill potholes or even clear snow from them. You can also check the street marker: public streets have a green background with white lettering while the private streets have a white background with black lettering.
