NOTICE OF SPECIAL COMMUNITY MEETING
September 24, 2014
I am writing to you on behalf of the MIRCC Board of Directors to ask for your help. At our last meeting the board voted to establish a “committee to make recommendations regarding below- slide road issues” to ensure that MIRCC is responsive to the needs of our downstream neighbors. Of the 13 current board members 11 are from above Sunset Falls and access their property over the new Canyon Falls Bridge so we no longer drive the first two miles of Mt. Index Road.
Since the massive mudslide that divided our community last winter our focus has been to restore access by building a new bridge at Canyon Falls. We are proud of the board members who stepped up and donated their time to make the new bridge a reality. But now we are faced with the equally daunting task of paying back the debt over the next four years exclusively with assessment funds from upstream owners, while continuing to explore and implement solutions for permanent access to Hwy 2.
Meanwhile, as winter fast approaches there is growing concern about ongoing road maintenance needs in your neighborhood as well as a need to plan for snow removal and emergency management in case of flood or other natural disaster. With all of this in mind, I am inviting you to join me in a focus-group discussion to consider the future of road maintenance and management in your sections of MIR below Sunset Falls.
Please mark your calendar and plan to bring your best ideas and suggestions to the Index Fire Station at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 4th immediately following our regular monthly business meeting. There will be time to hear from everyone and we will make sure all comments are noted and reported to the Board of Directors before any critical decisions are made. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and concerns next Saturday or feel free to email email@example.com to let me know how you would like to help improve our community.
Mark Bollman MIRCC President
FYI Aug Fincancials posted see Documents on the left hand side
Exit to the right off SR-2 east bound at mile 36.6, stay to the left when the road forks, when you come to the gate enter code on the key pad mounted on the post on the left just before the gate (gate opens slowly) and continue about .7 mile to the bridge.
Please abide by the 10 MPH speed limit and yield to Trucks. Fish Trucks for the Trap and Haul Facility at Sunset Falls makes numerous trips per day up and down the road before you reach the gate, so using extreme caution is advised. Somedays the truck makes as many as two trips per hour.
The bridge is “one lane”. Stop and make sure no vehicles are on the bridge coming in the opposite direction of your travel before you proceed onto the bridge.
Please travel at low speeds 10 MPH to the gate, 15 MPH on the road to the bridge and 10 MPH across the Bridge.
We all need to respect the owners of the private road who have granted easements for use. These owners request slow speeds and to keep the road clear of litter and garbage. If we abuse the road in anyway our easements will be revoked.
Remember the gate opens automatically when you exit, approach the gate slowly and leave room for it to swing towards you.
If you have not received your gate code email firstname.lastname@example.org for a response.
