Albion “Oak Show” Development Site

 

Located on Albion Ridge Road from approximately from 4.0 to 5.0 miles on the North side of ARR from 200” past Middle Ridge Road to “O” Road, this ~160 acre forest land has been Caterpillar scraped clear of brush to open soil and seeded with rye grass.

 

There has been no effort made to obtain permits according to county planning and this preparation appears to be a land conversion for residential development. The property backs up on magnificent views of Railroad Gulch, Table Mountain and the hills on Comptche Road in Little River.

 

These images were taken early March and speak for themselves. Work has continued to prepare the majority of the acreage and a road is about to be constructed 200 feet to the west of the Oak Show entry road.

 

Please form your own opinions about the appropriateness and legality of this project.    ~~Bernie Macdonald
