(A)   Bicycle and pedestrian facilities to be constructed along a county highway may be located in easements outside of the right-of-way of the county highway or may be located within the right-of-way if the local agency accepts maintenance responsibility for the facility and sufficient area exists to meet appropriate design standards. The county reserves the right to reject requests for permitting of bicycle and pedestrian facilities where insufficient area exists or where installation of such facilities would create a potential for unsafe conditions.
   (B)   Bicycle and pedestrian facilities permitted under this chapter shall not be maintained by the county. The permittee for such facilities must be a municipal or local agency with sufficient financial and operational resources to properly maintain and operate said facilities in a manner satisfactory to the county.
   (C)   The County is not responsible (financially or otherwise) for the design, engineering, or construction costs of bicycle or pedestrian facilities located in or outside the county right-of-way.
