Here is the start of the email chain.Magee, Robert <*****@******.***>4/21/16to me, Patricia
Michael,I will be working with Transportation on setting up a field trip to look at your situation. One possible option might be to remove the boulders between El Baquero & Via Pacifico and install (or allow property owners to install) a gate. Is that something you and your neighbors could support?Robert E. MageeDistrict Directormike Tapocik

5/5/16Good morning Just curious about yesterday MikeMagee, Robert <*****@******.***>5/5/16to me, PatriciaMichael,Patty Romo, County Transportation Director and I met on site yesterday and reviewed your requests/situation. We have come up with the following:1. El Toro Gate: This can be locked. Patty will coordinate with Sheriff & Fire and we’d ask you to coordinate with your neighbors.2. El Baquero at Valle Pacifio. Patty will arrange for the boulders to be removed and a gate placed allowing you and your neighbors access through this point. Again we would ask that you coordinate with your neighbors and any help you could offer with the last home on Valle Pacifico would be greatly appreciated. He can of course always call me directly.We will work on moving this plan forward unless you and your neighbors have any objections.Bob

Can you give me more is the county waffling on doing the work to make this accessible to the property owners?Have you considered a lawyer and at least threat of lawsuit here?Some more information please so I may assist you today, thanks.

Good morning Ray
I did send the start of the email chain. I will be meeting with a county council man this morning to see. I am strongly leaning towards a lawsuit.
I will forward more docs and maps later today.
Thank you

No problem talk to you then, this might be a breach of contract if you were promised this and they breached their agreement to do it.
