“The council asked myself and the CAO to prepare terms of reference, and we’ve also prepared a discussion paper of potential implications and considerations,” said councillor Colleen Hanrahan during the February 9 meeting of council.

Some of the problems council hopes to tackle include irresponsible ATV use, excessive speeding, littering, and vandalism.

Hanrahan explained the plan is to hold a meeting this month to discuss the scope of the project and what can be done to address the issues, and that a full report will likely be presented at the next council meeting.

Discussions were originally slated to have taken place at the February 9 meeting, but were deferred until that additional, private meeting takes place.
