Private road resources for rural homeowners

People who live in rural areas of the county do not have to put up with potholes and other malformation on their private roads. The Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County will host two workshops next month that will steer property owners toward information on getting funding for private road improvements. The free workshops will be 6-8 p.m.:
  • Wednesday, Dec. 2, at the Little Creek House on Swanton Pacific Ranch, 305 Swanton Road in Davenport.
  • Thursday, Dec. 3, at the Corralitos Community Church, 26 Browns Valley Road in Corralitos.
A field tour will be offered 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 5, at Boulder Creek Park on Middleton Avenue in Boulder Creek. The district’s goal is to teach rural road residents the basics of erosion and drainage, recognize the early signs of road failure, manage roads after fire, get information on working with road associations and neighbors to improve private roads and find funding and technical assistance for those improvements. Participants will receive a free Rural Roads Maintenance Guide. To R.S.V.P. for the workshops and tour, call Angie Stuart at 464-2950 ext. 22 or email her at
