2008-10-05 Road Through Saguaro Ranch Remains Open To The Public - Just Ignore the Boulders
http://www.youtube.com/TortolitaEasements
Despite what the Star reported in late August, the public still has access rights to a road that goes through the luxury Saguaro Ranch development in the Tortolita Mountains. The road is an extension of Thornydale Road and is legally recorded as a public easement by the county. Neighbors and members of the public have used the road for scenic drives, hikes, horse-riding, etc. for more than 40 years. (See "Tortolita Showdown," Currents, May 22.)
While Judge John Davis did not grant a temporary injunction requiring Saguaro Ranch developer Stephen Phinny to remove the boulders he's placed in front of the Thornydale extension, he also DID NOT issue a judgment that denies residents and the public from using the public easement.
