Kentucky OHV Park Recognizes Economic Potential of 4x4 Market
Oct 19, 2004
Rather than looking down on motorized recreationists, at least one county in the state of Kentucky is welcoming off-roaders with open arms. Are British Columbian municipalities capable of the same kind of unbiased and entrepreneurial thinking?
Just off the top of my head, I can think of at least one place where this would work quite well: Princeton. As far as I know the Newmont Mines copper mine on Hwy 3 (about 15 min. west of Princeton) is out of operation and could be turned into a very large, multi-leveled OHV park. They've also got large amounts of property on the other side of the valley. With the decline of tourist traffic due to the Coquihalla Hwy, I'm sure local merchants would be happy to see a new tourist draw for the town.
