Private streets - no public works issue is as unrelenting and as misunderstood by the public as private streets. About 90 miles of Worcester streets are considered private. Just what are private streets? How did they come into existence? What are your options as an abutter on a private street? The Department of Public Works & Parks has developed this Resident's Guide to Private Streets to answer these questions and to describe the services that are available to residents on private streets. We encourage you to read this guide carefully because it has a lot of information. Please feel free to call to learn more about your options or to ask questions.
