Three small Uptown streets — Rosa Park, Dunleith Court and Richmond Place — are all marked as “private” streets but no one pays taxes for them, a series of contradictions that dates back a century and that assessor Erroll Williams tells The Lens may have to end. Accounts conflict as to whether the city has maintained them, thus making them public, and it is also unclear who would be responsible for their taxes if they are kept private, The Lens reports.

In a separate but related report, The Lens examined the assessed value of Audubon Place, which is private and incurs about $7,400 a year in property taxes. Assessor Erroll Williams, however, has disputed some of the Lens’ conclusions about what the value of another private street, Trianon Plaza, should be.
