|Dvaughn1971||They are going to have a meeting on the 21 with the Forest Legacy people and the developers to find out if it is legal to trade off our public land . For right now they are not righting tickets but they will hassle you if you go up there. I think right now they are trying to see what kind of mess they made and what they can get away with before they close it for good|

|LYIN' KING||I couldn't hear him very well but I think he said the solution is for "like minded" folks to "buy their own property and do what they want on it"?|

This has been in the works since last century and is all about “green ways”, wildlife, real-estate developers and retirees.
The fight is against deals created back then between State/City government and interests in the private sector.
Toss in the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Cummings Cove Wildlife Management Agency, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency, the Trust for Public Land, the Tennessee River Gorge Trust and MANY others.
Just one look at just the resumes of the TWRA’s Commissioners alone reveals where this thing is going.
Here’s the first real blueprint for what is going on, a result of work started the prior century but cobbled together quickly over a five month period, originally released in 2003 and revised since then . . .

I just signed the petition to keep this place open. #2804. For anyone who hasn't signed this yet, I'm asking that you take 30 seconds out of your day to do so.
I have a link handy if anyone wants one posted.

As usual, you step up to an exceptional degree. Let us know what we can do to help, besides signing the petition. Most of us are land use newbs compared to you and don't even know where to start. Thank you. If you come down this way, the beer is on us.

I did find an update on another forum OffRoadSC.com (google search) that gives a bit more current info. Quote:
Update on Aetna Mountain Road access
Some of you may know about Aetna Mountain in Chattanooga, TN. We rode up there in 2009 i think and had a blast. Well they have been having issues with access to the mountain for years, i think since the early 2000s. The road in was developed into a subdivision and the owners were trying to get access to the mountain shut down. A Judge had ruled that it was a PUBLIC road, but the city was still having off duty police officers patrol it and block some people from going up the mountain.
well Recently there was a ruling from a judge in Chattanooga, and the patrolling has been ordered to be stopped. So the road is back open....for now.
A long-running dispute over access to Aetna Mountain Road in Lookout Valley was revived at the City Council meeting Tuesday night.
Jeff Perlaky said a judge ruled a number of years ago that the old dirt road is a public road.
But he said he has not been able to reach his property on the mountain recently, saying it has been blocked by off-duty city police officers.
He said Sgt. Rick Mincey resides at Cummings Cove and "told me to find an alternate route to my land."
Mr. Perlaky said, "It seems like he has a conflict of interest."
City Attorney Mike McMahan told Mr. Perlaky he and police official Jeannie Snyder would meet with him after the meeting.
Owners of Cummings Cove are planning a major development on land atop the mountain and a new road is being built up the mountain in place of the old one.
Cummings Cove owners say many people go up the old road and destroy private property.
City Police Directed To Stop Off-Duty Work At Aetna Mountain Road
posted October 7, 2011
Chattanooga Police officers have been directed to no longer work off duty in patrolling Aetna Mountain Road in Lookout Valley.
Chief Bobby Dodd said in a memo: "CPD will stop the extra job at the Aetna Mtn/Black Creek Subdivision based on a recent court order and legal advice from the city attorney. This is in reference to the blocking of the Aetna Mtn access road."
Jeff Perlaky, who owns property at the top of the mountain above the Cummings Cove subdivision, told City Council members recently that officers had been blocking the road.
He said he was told by Sgt. Rick Mincey to take an alternate route up the mountain.
Mr. Perlaky said a judge ruled several years ago that the old road is a public road.
After the meeting, Mr. Perlaky met with City Attorney Mike McMahan and with police official Jeannie Snyder.

How is TWRA closing the road?
How is signing an online petition supposed to keep them from taking this action?
