|PMPO Easement Project: Why?|
Not if, but when...
We can learn from Julian's and the most recent fire experience. Some property owners attempting to re-build did not have a deeded, plotable, easement to a County maintained road, and thus could not re-build.
It is a situation just like we would have on Palomar.
Even though owners have had 'physical access' for nearly 100 years to their cabins, and in most cases, that property is burdened with an easement for other people to use, that property might not own an easement all the way to the County maintained road. Rather than dealing with this in a time of major stress following the next wildfire, we can work together to clear it up now - one road at a time.
The need for easements has been made very apparent over the years. With the expertise of a lawyer, an engineer, and a realtor on the mountain, the project was launched. Title companies have uncovered many survey maps and references to some easements. Individuals have provided old records that have proven very valuable to neighboring properties as well.
Many hours of work have already been invested gathering information .We have explored and worked through several options with legal council to clear the easements which vary greatly depending on the area. Rather than working on easements on a case by case basis, these PMPO professionals are offering their assistance now at no charge to get the easements worked out properly for all.
