Michigan local government leaders' views on private roads

July 2015

This report presents the opinions of Michigan local government leaders on issues related to private roads—that is, local roads owned or maintained not by public agencies, but by developers or by private entities such as homeowners' associations. The report examines policies regulating private roads and jurisdiction problems, if any, with respect to these roads. The findings in this report are based on a statewide survey of local government leaders in the Fall 2014 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).
