Public input sessions on proposed Off-Highway Vehicle Bylaw

A regional Off-Highway Vehicle Committee was formed in about 2008 to examine the issues surrounding off-highway vehicles--noise, safety, potential for trails/tracks, etc. (Off-highway vehicles include snowmobiles, dirt bikes, quads, etc.)

A bylaw has been drafted to try to address the needs of urban and rural residents with regard to these vehicles. The participating municipalities are now looking for feedback at a series of open houses.

Open houses are all at 7:00 PM (no information on how long they run):
  • April 18: Grimshaw Elks Hall (MD of Peace No. 135)
  • April 19: Manning Legion Hall (County of Northern Lights)
  • April 20: Marie Reine Cultural Centre (Northern Sunrise County)
  • April 21: Belle Petroleum Centre (Town of Peace River)

Come out to learn about how the bylaw might affect you (whether or not you use off-highway vehicles) and to offer your feedback.
