WHITINGHAM - A controversial ATV ordinance dominated the Whitingham Selectboard meeting Wednesday, August 24, as residents debated with the Jack Pines Pirates ATV club and the board.
Jack Pines’ president Joe Berard told attendees the plan was to allow ATV use from Lone Pine Road to Vermont Route 112 in downtown Jacksonville, “the shortest route we could figure in the town,” he said. This would allow the club to form a trail system in town, as well as work with private landowners to discuss off-road use on their properties.
