    Default Oakland County ORV Park

    As you are probably aware, the gears of government turn slowly. The State of MI did its part, and completed the first land acquisition. The next step is Oakland County completing the lease agreements and giving the folks at Parks and Recreation the green light to complete the planning and start the programming. Unfortunately, some at the County seem to be dragging their feet...or getting cold feet. Dragging their cold feet? Anyway, it is not moving forward as we had hoped.


    If you are an Oakland County resident, I encourage you to contact your County Commissioners and let them know you are interested in the project. There are meetings scheduled, although the agendas are not yet available. For anybody in the State, there are a number of opportunities to make your voice heard on this subject:

    I am not supplying you with talking points or a sample letter to write - take a few minutes and draft a simple e-mail, take an evening and attend one of these meetings, or call your elected officials. Be respectful, but let them know we are continuing to spend our recreation dollars elsewhere while they figure out what color to paint the mail box.
