SHELBURNE TOWN COUNCIL: POTENTIAL OHV ROUTES REQUIRE FURTHER CONSIDERATION

At its regular meeting on November 2nd, 2016 the Shelburne Town Council considered a report provided by Town staff, presenting the results of recent public consultations regarding off-highway vehicles.  Consultations were conducted in late October and were very well attended; the Council received significant feedback from residents. Residents pointed to opportunities associated with developing a sanctioned off-highway vehicle route through the community, but also raised many concerns about OHV use which would have to be addressed before any such route was approved. Council heard residents' concerns and has directed staff to develop specific costed proposals for one or more potential OHV route options - taking into consideration the public feedback received - to be presented to Council and for further public consideration.
