Well congrats to Three Lakes. But this will be short lived. This another thing that the ATV plans are going to take away from the community. You can't have both here. The town needs to choose an identity. We are either a motorized town or a non-motorized town. So far, everything about land/forest use in Three Lakes in the spring through fall has been based around non-motorized, pristine wilderness enjoyment. The ATV club will destroy that. There is absolutely no way that recreational ATV riders can coexist in our forest with those people and creatures that do not want to have the sounds and destructive footprint of ATVs interfering with their enjoyment. Those people will go elsewhere now to watch birds, camp, or hike in peace. We will no longer be a Bird City and we will lose revenue along with that title. And we will lose them to our neighbors who had the brains to say no to ATVs.
