Stardust Hills south entrance/exit now closed

Thursday, March 28, 2019

The south entrance/exit of the Stardust Hills community onto Burma Road in Cloverdale will now be closed until further notice.

In an email sent to the Banner Graphic and town officials Thursday afternoon, Clerk-Treasurer Cheryl Galloway wrote that, "After many complaints about the condition of the south entrance/exit of Stardust Way onto Burma (Road) and the safety of the citizens, the Town will close that entrance/exit until further notice to through traffic."

Galloway also wrote that contractors have been notified of the road's condition, and that it is scheduled to be milled and paved. She also added that a specific date when paving machinery would be available to make repairs could not be given due to unpredictable weather conditions.

Those who have questions about the closing or other roadwork may call the Cloverdale Town Hall at 795-6033 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. except for Wednesday.

  • Why wouldn't you just patch the road? What an inconvenience it is for the people of Stardust Hills. Oh thats right, even though Stardust Hills has about half of the population of Cloverdale, you totally disrespect everyone there. I would like to know about how much of the water/sewer bill money comes from Stardust Hills. I think you people have lost your minds.

  • Perhaps if logging trucks weren't tearing up roads on 1000 south, Stardust Rd. and up by C BAR C, the roads wouldn't be destroyed. I seen police called many times during the logging process when the trucks were destroying everything. And I'm under the assumption that water and sewer funds cannot fund road projects. Only water and sewer projects. If I were the Town I wouldn't throw money at a road that was destroyed by the actions of a careless taxpayer. Perhaps the funds that Mr. Gedert received from the timber could go to fix the damage it caused? Where is his care for the people?

  • The town closing this intersection is cruel. One can quibble about sources of funds, but one cannot quibble that this subdivision does constitute nearly one half of the town.

    Further, the intersection is used not just by the residents of Stardust but also by county citizens to the South and West who use this shortcut when heading north. These are the Cloverdale addresses of "real estate for sale" which are often featured on the town's FaceBook page - though never any homes in Stardust, which are actually in the town.

  • Mooseylynn1202 First of all I think it had been months since the log trucks were on Stardust Rd when it started coming apart. Secondly I really don't think that the majority of the Cloverdale residents or the Town realize that Mr. Gedert already has more money invested in the Town of Cloverdale than anyone else with maybe the exception of the phone company. Sassylass I can tell you why Stardust is never on their page. Have you ever been to a Town meeting? Galloway has it out for Mr. Gedert and now for Mr. Bennington. Why you ask? They aren't yes people! They stand up against her when needed and she doesn't like it. So she attempts to get revenge where she can get it. The absolute best thing that could happen to Cloverdale and Stardust is if they both would forget the past and start working together.
