At Tuesday’s Door County Supervisor Board Meeting, a unanimous vote was made to rescind the amendatory ordinance chapter 11.05. The rescinded amendment designated portions of County Highway C from County Highway PD to North Duluth Avenue in the territorial boundaries of Sturgeon Bay and Nasewaupee as an ATV/UTV route.
Supervisor Bob Bultman called the issues surrounding these routes disconcerting and said that almost every time the routes are brought up there’s a problem. Bultman suggested the county being more uniform in planning and said that he probably won’t vote for any more ATV/UTV route suggestions until there is a plan or guidance from the county.
He implored the county to engage with the planning department to create a plan or policy for the overall county. It was noted after that the highway committee has taken action to have the Sheriff’s Department, Highway safety commission, and others get involved with creating a plan. It was also mentioned that there is no initiative for a county-wide plan at this time and that the requests for routes do come from local municipalities and townships. Supervisor David Enigl chimed in offering that municipalities should have set rules to follow.
Enigl also said he’s heard from too many residents wondering why ATV/UTVs have been coming down their road, without knowledge of designated routes.
