Proposed Off Highway Vehicle Park Receives Mixed Reviews In Brow - Wgem.com: Quincy News, Weather, Sports, And Radio

Some of the concerns residents had over the proposed OHV trail were torn up grass, impact on wildlife, and noise after the Illinois DNR showcased its plan to county officials. Glenn Sanders loves the idea of having an OHV trail in the area, but he doesn't believe Buckhorn is the right place. "They can't put this one this far from a hospital," he said. "For Brown County ambulance service to respond, it's a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes to get up to the site. And it's going to take Air Evac to get called from Quincy." Amy Madigan with Illinois Trails Outreach explained to the crowd what would be done and how it would impact the land. Madigan said the department looked at numerous sights like Buckhorn for six months. "We have looked at about 18 sights, existing DNR sights," Madigan said. "Buckhorn was elevated because of its uses and where it was located through our very extensive review process." There were many others who loved the idea of having the OHV park in Buckhorn. Gerald Lierly said with the state making many riders pay fees for their ATVs, he thinks it's only fair they should build this OHV park. "We feel like, I don't want to say left out but no place to ride," Lierly said. "We have no problem of buying stickers or titles, but we feel like we need to have a place to ride in the area." Madigan said this is just an informational meeting and nothing has been decided at this point. However if this is the site the parties agree on, officials hope to start construction by April.
