Friends of VCH Required Info for Property Transfers
Most of the roads in the Virginia City Highlands are on private property and are maintained by the Association. More than 83% of the Association roads are unpaved. Most of these roads are graveled, while the remainder consists of natural material (clay soils and rock) with perhaps some gravel placed at some time in the past.
The Highlands is a rural area. Four-wheel drive with appropriate tires are required for winter driving in the Highlands.
Presentation on the 2010-2011 LARRI
The List of Annual Repair, Restoration and Improvements (LARRRI) and Road Maintenance Plan is the guiding document for road maintenance for the VCHPOA. Here is a presentation on the 2010-2011 LARRI from the Roads Committee. It includes:
The Association has placed a magnesium chloride solution on parts of Empire, Sarazac, and Dortort for dust control purposes. The roads were also scarified and regraded, and then compacted with a vibratory drum roller after the MgCl2 application. Click here for Frequently Answered Questions (FAQ) on magnesium chloride from the manufacturer.
The manufacturer of a chemical is required to publish information on health risks and handling requirements. This information is called the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Click here for the MSDS sheets on MgCl2.
Durablend is a mixture of magnesium chloride and an organic polymer. It lasts as long as magnesium chloride, is less slick during wet conditions, and is slightly cheaper. (Note: the Durablend flyer is 932K, a fairly large file, particularly if you're using dialup)
