Results of the NEA4WDC Meeting with the Town of Florida 03/08/04 By Carl Merrick Tim Wagner did an excellent presentation to the selectmen and town manager last night. They are supportive of the 3rd initiative proposed by the North East Association of 4WD Clubs to block access to the waterhole and use the existing ATV bypass. Tim will be contacting DCR for the next step. ****IMPORTANT NOTE: At this time we do not have access to this ATV by-pass. PLEASE turn around at some point and DO NOT go through the environmentally sensitive waterhole.****
Concerns from Florida MA relating to OHRV operation in this area: · Ice cream/flat rock trail. Part of this trail is over DCR property. We need to cease use of this trail and convince others of that as well. · They would like to see an increase in self-policing. · Increased patronage of local businesses. · One of the selectmen has property in the area of some of the trails we operate on. One of his observations/concerns is the ‘long string of vehicles’ that pass by his farm. One thing we could do to alleviate this problem would be to stagger small groups leaving for trails. Not just in the Florida area but all areas in which we use trails. · Vehicles traveling over snowmobile trails in the winter. If the above concerns are noted in one geographical location, we can safely assume that it has been observed in other areas as well. Please do your best to support local businesses and be mindful of how we are viewed by local residents. Our ability to recreate in these areas has a direct correlation of how we are perceived while visiting. Please act responsibly.
