    Default Letter from Northumberland county Commisioners

    The intent of this program is to bring fresh, new money into Northumberland County on a regular basis. We need to provide some measurable economics to an area that has very limited employment. This OHV Park is a method to assist in economic development for an area that is economically disadvantaged due to poor road networks through major cities; disadvantaged by two lane roads leading to Interstate 80 and 81; and disadvantaged due to major mountain chains and very limited flat land that is not undermined. The OHV Park addresses the weaknesses of our area such as hilly terrain and rocks, and makes that weakness an economic strength because of the desire of OHV enthusiasts to “play” in that terrain. The overall regional scheme will address existing state game lands that abut County land, and existing State Parks and existing State Forests. However we need to make disadvantaged areas economically viable. We need to stem the slide of this region’s persistent drift into poverty!

    For a successful project we need to have personnel who are dedicated to improving our economy. My thoughts are to make this project what it is, an economic engine to provide jobs.

    Great letter!

    I know when MN opened it's first OHV park, in an old open pit iron mine, it boosted the local economy a lot!

    You have to figure in the things that we, as ORVers, use:

    Gas, and all the other goodies at gas stations, like ice/pop/etc.

    Lodging-hotels/campgrounds/weekend condos.

    Restaurants/grocery stores- whether dining in, or buying hotdogs and s'mor stuff.

    Liquor stores- Most folks camping for the weekend, like a few barley pops around the fire after wheeling. (I know I do!)

    Antique/Art shops-

    Auto parts stores-

    Rentals- We now have a couple of ATV/UTV rental places near our OHV park.


    On top of all of this, the ORV (Jeep and truck guys/gals) have done food drives for the local area, and every year 2 clubs put on the "Crawl4theCure" fundraiser for the MS Society.


    OHV parks are great for the local economy!!


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
