I agree that we all have property rights that should be protected. However, in this case the public Read Morehas been given access without restriction for decades. It has only been recently that the access to entry points in the new open space property have been sealed off and posted as no trespassing. The law is pretty clear that this type of issue gives the public rights they otherwise would not have. Additionally, on a more practical basis, these entry points don't seem to pose any threat to the property owners use of the roads or privacy concerns. Instead, they serve to give a good number of Healdsburg residents convenient access to public trails now formally known as the Healdsburg Ridge Open Space. Hopefully we can satisfy both the property owner's needs and the public's rights without a protracted legal battle.

I don't see how allowing foot traffic only on the access road would interfere with property rights. Read More The City should have been more protective of property surrounding a public water supply. What ever happened to the restrictions on building upon ridge-tops? What is going to happen to the public water supply with residential sewerage lines running adjacent to our drinking water? Has any environmental studies been done on the effects this private property would have on OUR water supply?

The information I have been able to gather concerning public use of private property is this IfRead Morea dverse and open public use can be established 5 years before 1972, (1967); then, Implied Dedication exists. The easy part is establishing the Implied Dedication. The hard part is getting the resources together for a court case.
