29.60.010 Generally.

Private streets may be considered as an alternative to residential public streets without a specific design exception if the standards in this chapter are met. Private streets have historically posed problems over time as they deteriorate and property owners do not realize the burden of maintenance is theirs. Application of the criteria established in this chapter should avoid problems encountered in the past with private streets and provide property owners some protection through a maintenance agreement and funding.

The shared driveway (also called an “autocourt”) is a private street. The loop lane is intended as an alternative public street.
