For all of those interested Tues the 27th will be the first Public meeting of the new Northumberland County OHV / multi-use Park.

The Meeting is at 6:00pm. Lacation is the Shamokin Area High School Auditorium.

We need a good showing of interested persons. This means everyone that reads this and can make the drive. We expect frim resistance from a few very vocal groups. We need to make sure that we get as many persons to the meeting that are not locals. Locals we need you there as well!

The largest misconception is that the area will only be used by the same type of people they notice now. The drunks, litter bugs, drug trafficing, and other "undesirables." Most people in town never notice the respectable groups that have been, or are still using the area.

I will post up more information on the meeting as I get it.

If you are in a club/group or know 5 other people that enjoy our sport, tell them.

This first public meeting will be your best opportunity to have your own input into the development of the park. The Northumberland County officials, and the design and engineering firms, will be there to hear your ideas and comments.
The goal of the project is to build what you guys/gals want and need for your motorized and non-motorized recreational activities. Having 6000+ acres of abandon strip mine land ,that has been used extensively for off-roading for the last 40 years, is a great start.
Check out Facebook and the our web page for updates and progress on the park. Please leave a comment letting us know what you think.

This sounds great. I'm a couple of hours away in western NY so its a pretty quick and easy trip. Already sent them an e-mail saying I'm looking forward to coming back ... and bringing along a few freinds as well.

So the trails are there, right now? and the county owns them, and these people are mad that they are trying to organize the area? I don't get it, can you just drive up to the 'proposed area' and off road? or is it one of those, off road and get yourself a DNR fine?

Thats what i figured

that's never made any sense to me. 'We own this land, do nothing with it, but it has trails, and no you cant go out there and use it', it makes bureaucratic sense, but makes no common sense. The gripes from the people who don't want the park seem to be about how they can use the area now just fine for free, but they must be slow, because they obviously cant

I hate simple people, i wish they wouldn't procreate.

see its not very enforced, gotta do something pretty dumb to have issues, or find a cop thats being a pr*ck, because i have been there with officers riding with me years ago and never a issue, its kind of weird, there are a lot of people that go back there with all kinds of vehicles. Many never have issues with the law, and most who do, take it to the judge and its handled, its a wierd situation. But they want to continue to get drunk, drive around, shoot at things throw beer bottles, cigarette packs and other crap that they say they dont and whatnot.... backyard hillbilly knuckleheads all run through there....
