Alternative Access Status

The County is reviewing all options for alternative access routes to the north to bypass the slide area. Our main concern is providing a safe alternative for residents to use. There are no public access routes available, therefore we are working with other agencies and private property owners to determine if an alternative can be located and used until the road can be repaired.

Real Estate staff provided a sample license agreement to the property owners that they contacted either by phone or met at Saturday’s community meeting. Property owners were asked to review the agreement and consider what questions or concerns they may have with providing public access.

State Parks has provided verbal confirmation that State property can be used for an alternate access. Public Works and Parks staff met at the location yesterday to determine the improvements that will need to be made to the road before public access can be allowed. Real Estate staff is working with State Parks staff this week to execute an agreement to use the State property. Once the agreement is executed Public Works will initiate a contract to have improvements made to the property for access.
