Kassis Property Easements

UNBLOCK THE PUBLIC EASEMENTS ON THE KASSIS PROPERTY

In 1973, 30-foot easements were dedicated from Mira Del Rio Drive to Stirling Park Drive, and down into the 20-acre walnut orchard (floodplain), connecting to the American River Parkway's River Bend Park and Jedidiah Smith Bicycle Trail. These are public easements are currently being blocked. These easements are important to the connectivity of riding paths and river access. Newspaper articles from 1973, when these easements were granted, make it clear bike riders were to have access to these public riding paths. We urge that these easements be enforced and demand the property owners immediately remove their fencing which is illegally blocking public access.

UPDATE: The City of Rancho Cordova has CANCELLED the April 20, 2021 hearing because property owners removed the chain-link fence at the end of Stirling Park Dr.; HOWEVER, the recorded public easements remain blocked from Stirling Park Drive to the west towards Mira Del Rio by several obstructions including a wood fence, a white rail fence, and horse corral.

Thank you to everyone who joined us to walk the easements on May 1, 2021. See coverage of the event "Locals Assert Rights to Public Easements"

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Sample message: 

Dear Mr. Ducharme,

The recorded public easements from Stirling Park Drive to the west towards Mira Del Rio remain blocked by several obstructions despite the April 20th appeal hearing being dropped by the property owner. At the City Council meeting on April 5th, the City Manager expressed that the easement was not blocked. Please have all obstructions removed to our immediate public access including the horse corral, white rail fence, and any others.

Thank you,

Sample message:

Dear Mr. Chamberlain,

Several people have previously made complaints about the continued blockage of the recorded 30-foot hiking and riding public easement at 9836 Mira Del Rio Drive. We are being denied public access to the recorded public easement.

Please provide a response regarding what the County is doing about this issue and when the fencing blocking the public easement will be removed.

Thank you,

/S/
