On Wednesday (August 7th), the Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) introduced details of our Off-Road Park Project to an elite group of Forest County land holders, elected officials and law enforcement leaders at the Forest County Chamber of Commerce Building in Crandon, Wisconsin. Those invited to this private presentation included leaders from; Forest County Board of Supervisors, Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Forest County Sheriff’s Department, Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, United States Congress, Wisconsin State Assembly and the Wisconsin State Senate.
This was a small gathering, in a casual and relaxed setting. WORVPI shared information (via a PowerPoint Presentation which will be available soon on our web site) and answered questions from the group. Those in attendance also left with copies of the WORVPI Business Plan, the WORVPI Feasibility Report and our just completed 32 Most Asked Off-Road Park Questions. As policy makers and land managers it is vital to provide these entities with factual, accurate information to allow them to better understand our project. WORVPI’s goal was to provide information on how exactly our Park will positively improve the use of the regional land base, assure the highest of environmental standards, increase local tax revenue and serve as a huge catalyst to the northern Wisconsin economy.
Wednesday was the first of a series of planned meetings to share information and details regarding our 10,000 Acre Forest County Off-Road Park. WORVPI has invited representatives from the major motorized trail recreation user groups to a private meeting (scheduled for later this month) at which we’ll debut our ORV Park Project to them. Additionally, meetings with all stakeholder groups have been or are being scheduled for later this summer and early autumn.
If you’re an ATV, OHM, UTV or 4WD enthusiast make sure to ask your representative groups leadership if they plan to attend the meeting and ask them to share the information provided to them with you!
