    Where is South Mountain Pass on the list of roads to be paved? We have been residents of South Mountain Pass since 1968. The cost to taxpayers to repair, rebuild and grade over half of the Pass just this year must be immense because a crew and equipment are there to do this work after every heavy rainfall, of which there have been a growing number as climate change asserts itself on our lives. A portion of the Pass was paved, to great effect, and with equally great appreciation by the vast majority of those living on and using the Pass. Less than a handful still object to paving, but the success of the partial paving is impossible to deny. However, half a loaf is not enough, not nearly. Gather your courage, those who run the town, and add the Pass to your list.
