A Berry Picker: Gozzer Ranch’s Unfriendly Welcome

Have you heard that Gozzer Road is now the private driveway to the new gated community and golf course? While trying to drive through from Burma Road to Hwy 97 a couple weeks ago, my wife and I were stopped by guards and told that unless we had an appointment, which they would verify, we were not welcome on “their” road. Guard houses have been erected and everything but gates installed on both sides of this new development to keep the public off Gozzer Road. What’s next? The only other place in the country I have ever heard of this happening was/is back east on (I think) Martha’s Vineyard. Since when are developers allowed to take over a public road and close it to the public? Thanks for listening
