I asked how they would determine what trails would be closed due to "lack of use"
They plan on having a "comment period" to determine who uses what trails when. This will not only be an issue for ORV, but snowmobilers, single track riders.
I told him I was a soon to be displaced wheeler
Word is out, so plan on some good representation from our community.
Just going by what I seen in the region 4 minutes. I just know that when were not around we tend to get forgotten about as if we dont exist. Good showings at these meetings when there is a issue makes it harder to be forgotten.
