Paving CR 1 is for convenience of few

Dear Editor,
After evaluating the pros and cons of the proposed paving of County Road 1, I have come to the conclusion there is only reason to do so and that is "for the convenience of a few"!
Those "few" don't want to be inconvenienced by driving down Log Hill through Ridgway. But if convenience is the prime mover in your life, why did you move here from the city in the first place? It is not a matter of  convenience to live in a rural setting, period. It is a choice we make to live with less convenience in exchange for less traffic, fewer people and more of nature and the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Let's not be so quick to try and change what we moved here for in the first place!
