Dave explained that the only Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was done for Chase Gulch Reservoir only, and did not include the additional impact of development for the Eureka Ranch project. A supplemental EIS would be needed for each stage of the project, and the pipeline would require at least a supplemental, if not a full EIS.
A discussion was held about the problem of individuals wanting not just road access to their land, but access to their preferred building site. They want different, easier access, even if an existing road goes across or very near their land.
It was strongly felt that all old wagon and cow trails should not be considered "public roads" for property access. One problem has been the use of the wagon trails by 4-wheel and off-road vehicles over the years.
It was suggested that possible we need to update the document outlining all permitted roads in York Gulch. It was originally created by Jaye Riley and Maryann Kurtwaitis. It was updated a few years ago by Jaye and Steve Peters, who walked every road in York Gulch to determine which roads GCCHLA should pay the Forest Service to permit.
We need to update the existing map showing which claims appear to touch or cross roads. Dave suggested we may need to produce an addendum essentially. saying "Here are the roads; if they don't already touch your property, you don't have road access. You will need to negotiate with nearby private landowners or the Forest Service to obtain access".Small Claims Act -- Group Status
