WORVPI Update (11/30/15)

The Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) was invited to attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Gerbers Law, S.C. in Green Bay, Wisconsin. A WORVPI representative was on-hand as our Corporate Counsel (Terry J. Gerbers, President) officially took up operation in his beautiful new offices on Holmgren Way. Gerbers Law, S.C. was established in 1993. Their attorneys practice primarily in the areas of commercial and business law, real estate, civil litigation, banking law, and probate. Their mission is to provide businesses comprehensive and effective legal counsel.

Gerbers serves as corporate counsel to many businesses in Northeastern Wisconsin, providing assistance and counseling in all of their legal affairs. Their office assists in commercial real estate, and has assisted WORVPI with open records requests, as well as corporate legal advice. As experienced trial attorneys, they also litigated complex commercial disputes on behalf of corporate clients in state, federal, and appellate court.

The Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) Board of Directors will be meeting in two weeks. While diligently working to secure an ORV Park here in The Badger State, WORVPI continues to comment on national, regional and state issues which surely impact motorized recreation in Wisconsin. As these issues also impact upon our mission and goals, we will remain involved with these issues.

WORVPI submitted written comments on the following:

Phelps MX Trails Practice Area – This OHM practice area is located in Franklin County, Virginia. Julie Phelps (Owner) hired landscape and sound engineers to ensure the planned operation was in compliance with local ordinances and did not infringe of the rights of the neighbors. However, emotional complaints from uniformed local residents prompted the Planning Commission to recommend to the Franklin County Board of Supervisors that the Phelps’ application be denied (SOUND FAMILIAR?!).

Local governmental entities across the country often make decisions which negatively impact motorized recreational opportunities based on their individual, petty agendas rather than acting in the best interest of the residents whom they supposedly represent. WORVPI is saddened by the situation which has befallen the Phelps’ and can sympathize with their situation. For this reason alone, WORVPI was driven to submit our written support for this project to the Franklin County Board of Supervisors.

WORVPI continues to recruit and accept motorized recreation user groups to jointly sign an MOU. The groups entering into a MOU are placed on our Partner’s List (much like “Friends of Groups”) and have realized that a Motorized Recreation Area (MRA) will never become a reality without the active support of these user groups. Simply waiting for Our Park to open and then jumping onboard with support is not being a responsible advocate for motorized trail recreation.
