I think we need a place for kids to go to get off the streets. I think we need a hobbie store for those who do crafts and hobbies. I think we need a crosswalk at the Brass Rail and Hwy 49. I think the community center should be used for the kids and elderly. They should share it. Let me know your ideas.

The funny thing is... most people who really donít know North San Juan well enough have a negative view Ė hippies, drugs, bums, bikers.... etc. Yet, prior to the Vietnam War it was a quiet community. In fact, it was the model town for Mayberry used by the producers of the Andy Griffith show. I think NSJ can return to its prior sparkling days, the days when gold was the attraction of the town. There are new industries, jobs in Nevada City and Grass Valley, but my only fear is that people who donít understand the gift of small town life will want to move to NSJ. What I mean is, itís very important that people respect each other, care, and bring a good nature to the community and try and know their neighbor without judging them.

well said, world traveler (alto I'm a bit skeptical about the Mayberry thing!)
I live in North San Juan and love it even for its orneriness. Some of the negatives about the town seem positive in a certain way. Its lousy reputation helps keep it small! And you almost have to suspend yor judgemental attitude to live here without friction. A sifting occurs, albeit different gold.
