As you are well aware we have spent more than 10 years trying to open up an ATV/SxS route through the town of Lindsay to connect the north and south VRTC as well as opening more rural roads to allow residents to access the trails from their homes or access gas and restaurants while on the trails. Our goal is and always will be to find ways for riders to safely access the trails using road links
Our members have been asking for a route through Lindsay for many years now and it’s time to help us make that happen. Now the time has come for you to do your part!!!
In order to help facilitate this process, they are looking for input from residents and visitors regarding the use of off road vehicles on municipal roads within Kawartha Lakes.
You have 3 options:
The ORV Task Force will be hosting its first public meeting on March 19, 2021 at 10am where the group will be seeking public input on the Task Force’s recommendations for which roads to use to connect existing trails in Kawartha Lakes for off road vehicle use.
Option 1 – Residents are invited to speak, but must register by noon on March 17, 2021 in order to participate in the meeting. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and safety measures, the meeting will be held virtually through Zoom. To register, please contact Brianne Harrison by emailing email@example.com.
Option 2 – residents can also register to use the Jump In platform to ask questions online directly to the Task Force. https://jumpinkawarthalakes.ca/orv
Option 3 – If you aren’t a resident or are a resident but don’t want to speak up at the meeting we ask that you at least send an email to the task force in support of opening all rural and village roads as well as routes through the town of Lindsay to connect the trails. You can email the task force directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, the anti-ATV groups are hard at work trying to stop this from happening and now it’s up to you to show your support. The task force needs to hear from the responsible ATV and SxS riders out there who follow the rules, understand what’s at stake and want to make this trial project successful. They need to know how much money you spend in the community when you’re riding (food, gas, accommodations, etc) and how important this opportunity is to you and your family. Please send an email to the task force before March 19th so that your submission can be taken into consideration.
