Mitzefelt says a regional park will provide new opportunities for recreation and healthy activities for children and families. He also says it will provide safe, regulated, off-road recreation, and reduce the problem of illegal riding.
Two specific sites that are said to have good potential are the "Gold Park site" and the "Marine Base site." The study is expected to take 12 to 18 months to prepare, and cost $50,000.
Funds for the study will come from Off-Highway Vehicle License Fees.
