The following comment on paving was sent in by North Fork neighbor Jane Reardon… I was at the meeting last week. I believe I came away with a slightly different take. The issue is the number of people already coming up the North Fork. They are here, folks! Paving the road will have an impact but there will be more and more people coming up the North Fork Rd whether we pave or not. I, frankly, do not buy the issue of killing the animals. The dust issue is a bigger problem and from my perspective more dangerous as it is harder to see animals on the road in the summer. I thought the meeting was very informative with the officials struggling to weigh in on the cost of maintaining the road. The expert engineers are saying it cannot be maintained for long without paving. This is not the North Fork of the 60’s or 70’s as much as we might like it to be.
