There is a Web site, “FS512 Desert to the tall pines,” which explains that most of the residents of Young are not in favor of paving the FS512, the road which leads to SR260. This statement is true, most residents would not like the road paved as it would create higher traffic volume.
However, the full-time residents would like to have better maintenance on the FS512. The road is dangerous due to the lack of material to grade the road properly. It is currently being maintained by the Pleasant Valley crew and they do their best to keep the road in shape. The problem is, there simply is nothing to grade, it is down to the hardpan.
Between the Forest Service and the county, we will probably never receive the needed material to repair and maintain our road. So in essence, this message is moot.
