Comments: Map revision (Final) received 08/28/2023 mmj Barry - thanks for getting us the updated maps. The only concern I have with your route is between CR 19 (Wilson/Taft Hill) and CR 38E. We don't typically allow routes into County subdivisions if there is a mainline county road that could be used instead. The subdivision roads in the county are maintained by the property owners in the subdivisions and so we avoid routing special events through them if at all possible. Our records also show that Hidden Springs Drive is private so we can't approve a route on private roads. I imagine you are trying to get as many gravel roads into your route as possible but in this case we'd like it if you stayed on CR 38E all the way to/from CR 19 Thanks Rusty Revised map received 08/21/2023 mj - new route map received 08/22/2023 mj - new map on 8/28/2023
