Default Support for Bundy Hill November 10th, 2009 "Your all Invited to attend!"

There will be a Planning Commission Meeting for Somerset Township on November 10th, 2009. @ 7:00pm
The purpose of this meeting is to hear public comment in regards to the newly drafted ORV Park Ordnance that will allow Bundy Hill Off Road Park to obtain it's permanent operating permit. The results of this meeting will influence the Boards decision on adopting that Ordinance.
Currently, Bundy Hill is operating with a Temporary Permit for the rest of the season.

We are inviting you to attend this meeting, as a show of support for the park. We need to convince the Township Board that by passing this ordinance, it will be good for the community of Somerset Township. They need to be assured that we have a setting to ride that is professionally operated, safe, and family oriented. The Township Board also needs to understand that this park is not only good for the Township, but for the States of Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana also. Numbers will speak volumes on this one!
We would love to see the parking lot of the Township Hall full of Jeeps, Crawlers, and Buggies as the Board Members arrive for the meeting.

This cannot and will not be a Lynch Mob type meeting. It is for public comment only. That means if someone opposes it, they have that right to do so, and they move on.
We will have the opportunity to speak, and when we get the floor, we state our positives in support of the park, and we move on.
There are going to be neighbors that are going to speak out in opposition of the park, so don't take offense to it.
There are neighbors that are also going to speak up in support as well!
If you think you would like to speak on behalf of your Club or Organization in support of the issue, please contact me (PM) and I will add you to the list that we will be giving the Board. We have lined up folks from several Off Road Organizations, to speak on our behalf. After the all of our scheduled speakers have presented there support, then we will have time for the floor to speak were you (The 4x4 community) can make your statements and be heard as well.
Please understand that we need to keep this orderly, and professional at all times.

We would like to thank everyone that has been out to the park, and attended the meetings in the past.
As well, we would like to say a huge Thank You, if you can attend the meeting on November 10th. @ 7:00pm.
We understand that Somerset Township is not right around the corner from most of you, and we really appreciate your support and commitment to the park.
Please look for updates about the meeting on our web site: www.bundyhilloffroad.com

Thanks,
Owners & Staff of Bundy Hill Off Road Park.

Location:
12715 E. Chicago Rd.,
Somerset Center, MI

Meeting Time:
7:00pm, but we would like to see everyone there at 6:30pm if possible.

I'll try to see if I can make it out again. Thanks for a weeks heads up this time.

I want to see this park stay open. It's so nice to have a great park only an hour from the house! That and the area can use this added flow of traffic.

I cannot make it, but do everything you can to get any and all local business owners in support of the park to attend and speak. Having the business owners themselves speaking on behalf of the park to the board is huge.

Jarhead, the president of GLFWDA will be doing this now, and not me. Just an FYI.

Default Board Members Show Up at the Park on Sunday!

A couple of the Board Members of the Somerset Township Planning Commission came out to the Park yesterday. They were given Jeep tours of the whole place. It was a great day for them to visit, because they had the biggest crowd to date to observe. It was a good sample of what the Park has to offer, and how everyone uses it.
I think they were impressed on how well it's being used by everyone, and how safe people were being. We took them around to show them what impact the Park was having on our neighbors and what we have done to help solve issues that have been brought up. (Noise, and Dust ect..) We also had the opportunity to show them the economic impact that we have made on Somerset Township.
I thank them for taking the time to come out and really see what goes on.
Hopefully they vote accordingly on Tuesday, based on what they witnessed on Sunday.

Meeting Tuesday Evening 7:00pm, be there at 6:30pm for the Jeep Parade into the parking lot of Somerset Township Hall!

Thanks!

Cool, good luck. That's pretty quick processing on the Township's part to draft a new ordinance and have it ready for public hearing already.

Just got back, so here’ s my quick report.

Thank you very much to everybody who attended, and especially those who spoke up with their comments. The comments lasted an entire hour straight. Had more people shown up, I don’t know that there would have been time to hear them all. There were very strong feels and comments from both sides.

I think the positive opinions representing the ORV / ATV community were very well voiced and all aspects that needed to be considered were mentioned. The committee certainly has a lot to consider now.

Those opposed cited noise as their #1 reason, and honestly, they didn’t have much else. I think the supporting side did a great job of answering their concerns for the noise.

I did what I could and spoke my peace, and hopefully it did some good. I was even surprised when my wife stood up and said a few words.

I could write for 2 pages straight with more details, but it probably doesn’t matter at this point in the game. This battle is far from over. If I recall correctly, this was simply the planning committee, and they only have the power to forward these comments to a board of directors, that will ultimately issue or not issue the zoning ordinance.

I’ll be there to support whatever happens in the near future. The board has my number if they wish to contact me for further support.
