How do you feel about the possibility of expanding ATV riding areas in Oneida County?

I'm all for it. We need to diversify our economic base.

I'm OK with opening up some roads to ATVs but this has to be done carefully.

This is a bad idea for the Northwoods. We have to protect the natural beauty/serenity of this area.
