Public meeting being held to discuss proposed off road park in PA!
There is going to be a public meeting held at the Shamokin High School July 27th at 630pm to discuss a proposed off road park near Shamokin, Pa. All the wheelers in and around the area should try to attend. Those that are in support of it, we need your help. Those that are against it, should also attend to voice your concerns. Don't be the ones that don't do or say anything, and then complain when it does, or doesn't happen!!
had 2 meetings so far and 1 more scheduled, for june 23rd at the shamokin high school. should prove to be pretty interesting. there are some very vocal locals that have shown up for the previous 2 speaking out against it.
So when and where is the next meeting? Live in Baltimore but grew up in Perry County 20 min south of Shamokin/Selinsgrove/Sunbury area. My folks are still there and I visit often. An offroad park would be amazing. So much empty woods and unused land around there plus all the 4x4 and ATV owners I'm shocked it even needed discussion. Selinsgrove Speedway dirt track can be seen and heard for 5 miles in every direction on a Friday night but a few guys in the woods is a problem? Hope I can make it.

that they'll have to pay to wheel "their own land". the freakin derelicts think cuz they pay taxes, they own it.
if thats the case, i GOTTA own more than this crummy 2/3 of an acre by now with all the taxes ive paid since 16yrs old.
if u ever been in that area, then u know it needs some SERIOUS stimulation.
Wow. I would have thought it would be noise, or environmental impact or something "normal". That they would have to pay too just takes the cake.
Sounds like some people want it both ways. They can either open it up to everyone and pay to play like everyone else, or keep those private little honey holes for wheeling all to themselves and remain "unstimulted".
It's a shame some people don't understand what a compromise really is.
So, did no one think that maybe a discount for anyone from a certain set of zip codes could solve this problem?
the ppl who DONT use the land for garbage dumping and drunken quad riding now are the ones using environment issues and noise for their non-supportive opinions.
the ppl who DO use the land for these purposes are using "its their land" excuses.
the really retarded part of it all is ppl who want it to be an ohv park (such as myself) are willing to come in and clean up the trash and use it for good things. most of the ppl who live around it are against it, cuz they cant continue to abuse it. or they dont want an influx of strangers parading around town. some of their opinions are valid, most are not. almost like they want their neck of the woods to be a landfill. and trust me, its gettin close to 1.
im ready to clean it up and cut trails.
the pressure makes us stronger, the struggle makes us hunger, the hard lesssons make the difference, and the difference makes it worth it.
