Who is responsible for maintaining Sky Tavern Road
The Mt. Rose Bowl Subdivision No. 1, Tract Map No. 280 was recorded August 5, 1944. The roadways were set apart on the map but they were not improved, they were not dedicated to, nor were they ever accepted by Washoe County. The law at the time was 5063.23 (which later became NRS 278.380). The statutes stated that the Board of County Commissioners “accept or reject any and all offers of dedication”. Since there was no offer of dedication made when the map was recorded and there has not been a subsequent offer of dedication, the County does not have ownership of the roadway. Since the County does not own the road, the County has no duty to maintain it. Sky Tavern Road has also been thoroughly reviewed by Washoe County and it has been determined that the roadway does not meet Washoe County street standards. Sky Tavern Road appears to be a “public access” road that is privately owned and maintained in accordance with NRS 405.191. The roadways maintained in this area are portions of the Old Mt. Rose Hwy that were relinquished to Washoe County from the State of Nevada, Department of Highways January 20, 1961.
