Off-Road Vehicles in CoKL

There has been a lot of talk, and some community concerns voiced, around the changes made to provincial legislation regarding Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) use on highways and municipal roads in the City of Kawartha Lakes.  As a result, a task force has been formed and “the goal is to provide Council with recommendations based on research and public consultation that will help expand and enhance ORV use activity across the municipality.”

At least one member of the Sturgeon Point community has already sent an email to Councillor Doug Elmslie and the Hon. Laurie Scott (Haliburton—Kawartha Lakes—Brock), Minister of Infrastructure, voicing concern about these vehicles being allowed to be driven on the small roads in our community.

While SPA is not expressing an official opinion, we encourage all members to become informed and to voice their own opinions.  You can contact Councillor Elmslie, Minister Scott and the Chair of the ORV Task Force, at the following coordinates:
