Northumberland OHV park 1st public meeting

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.

Maybe you should start like some sort of petition to gather up interest....post in Pirate 4x4 too to get more interest. Wouldn't give Raush Creek some competition though? theres needs to be a OHV park between PA and MD

Its not to compete with rausch. It will be there to offer more for people who travel to north east pa. Hopefully it will help rausch in the end, and give people a reason to spend a week in Pa exploring what both have to offer. Think about it three great offroad areas all within a couple hours from each other, what else could you want. Plus you can con the wife into a Knobles trip after your done wheeling.
