How do I get my road classified as a county maintained road?

Public roadways of Yavapai County may be added to the official road inventory if established, engineered, and constructed to current county standards (Resolution 1036), recommended for approval by the Public Works Director and approved for maintenance by the Board of Supervisors.
Yavapai County Resolution 1036: Minimum Standards for Yavapai County Roadways 

Cost of improvement is the sole responsibility of the developer or property owners for that area. Funding can be accomplished voluntarily within a community or the formation of an improvement district (resulting in an assessment) may be the most appropriate method to use for road improvement.
