We all pay for that section of road, and nothing is private about it. Imagine if well all said the same thing, "Stay Off Our Road," where and how would we get anywhere?<quoted text>
PRECISELY the point we residents are trying to make!!!! It's not necessarily that the road is used as a shortcut, it's that (many of) those using it are reckless, careless and thoughtless...
As for the Burro's, as long as people are in their area, they are going to get hit no matter how well of poor one is driving.
There is only two ways to address the issue. One is through better traffic enforcement along that stretch of roadway. The other is by widening the road itself.
All would be in favor of the first part, however the real underling issue is the widening of the road and the loss of personal property along the frontage of it.
Widening would alleviate the traffic congestion, and ease the ability of those who live along the canyon to exit their property safer.
However who is willing to give up 25 to 30 feet of their property for most likely a very low price, or through eminent domain if they chose not to sell.
Frankly I see that as the true issue, and not this bogus one which this whole discussion grew out of, the Burro's.
This call for closure is a real smart one. Let's see close it at what points?
Reche Canyon Rd. and Reche Vista only? Reche Canyon Rd. and Locust Ave.? Reche Canyon Rd. and Nason St.? Those are some of the ways of getting to Reche Canyon Rd. from Moreno Valley, as well as the only roads to use from Reche Canyon Rd, into Moreno Valley.
Should it also be closed at E. Washington Street and Reche Canyon Rd.?
Sound a little the old west, and a fight over water or Sheep Vs. Cattle doesn't it.
