ATV Trail Issue gets put on "Hold" by Crow Wing County Board

Consideration for support of an ATV trail system was removed almost as soon as it appeared on the agenda last night as the Crow Wing Country Board learned that a public petition was filed with the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board seeking an assessment worksheet for the proposed ATV trail between Brainerd and Emily--passing through Trommald, according to the Brainerd Dispatch. Long-time ATV enthusiast Roger Bently of Crosby was at the meeting. In an interview with K-Lakes, he explained his passion for riding, and the fact that the trails under consideration have actually been there a long time. Brainerd Attorney Patti Aanes, who represents some clients opposed to the trail, explained via a phonecon that her clients aren't "anti-ATV"--they're just interested in exactly where the trail would go. One of the arguments against the trail actually surfaced last night when it came to light that there may be historic burial grounds on the proposed trail between the Mississippi River and Black Bear Lake. Commissioner Doug Houge, who represents the area, said that there are no concept routes that are etched in stone.

Politicians need to stop dragging their feet. ATV trails are desperately needed.
