We are a small group of fellow riding enthusiasts. We would like to inform you about a private track and trail riding facility that we propose to construct and operate in the Johnsburg/Thurman area in Warren County, NY. The project involves the creation of 3 ATV tracks and 3 MX tracks for varying skill levels, an oval flat track, a drag strip, approximately thirty miles of backcountry, mountain riding trails, and a campground area on 738 acres. The project has been submitted to the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) for permit approvals and is going through the review process.
We are seeking support for this venture from ORV, ATV, Motorcycle clubs and Associations in the New York area, and residents of the State of New York to demonstrate the need and desire for a project of this type to the APA and other oversight agencies. We have been told that this is the first project of its type to be proposed to the APA. We anticipate the ongoing approval process may include a public hearing at some point in time. A show of support in the form of attendance or in writing, at a hearing, could have positive results for not only this project but the entire ORV community. We are told that this will be the first of its kind within the Adirondack Park and possibly the Northeast section of the country.
With the confiscation of the ATV Trail Fund and the loss and closure of ride-able land in this state, we see this as an important way to protect and promote our passion for the sport. We hope we can count on your support as we move forward with this project to provide legal riding alternatives to the ATV/MX community.
Please feel free to contact us via email to discuss the project, with any information or other avenues of support, or to voice your support. Please include your name and the town you reside in on any emails. We cannot use it to show your support with just a screen name or email address.
