Abbotsford public track meeting
« on: February 22, 2012, 04:03:57 PM »
Abbotsford Public RC Track

Men With Remotes has been working for three years to make a public track in Clearbrook Park in Abbotsford a reality.   We have all the permissions, planning and budgeting, now we need a group of people willing to help make it a reality and donations to cover the cost. 

phase 1 is a dirt track, phase two is a rock-crawler course, phase 3 is a paved road course.

Note that this is not intended to be a pro racing facility, but rather a free place for casual RC people to have fun with their rigs, see how much fun a track can be, and then hopefully step up to organized racing at other facilities.

We are having a public meeting ****

Topics will include:
track plans,
budget
volunteers/equipment needed for construction
ongoing maintenance and supervision


For more info email menwithremotes@hotmail.com

Neighbors to the park are forcing the project to go back to council, so here we go again, more paperwork.  It should go through no problem, but council has to let the people be heard.

Public meeting is delayed for a month or so.

Yep, due to city parks noise bylaws it must be electric only.
If we had a place to build it that was open to all vehicles we would, but no such luck.

it's more general park noise than use in particular.  it's actually the crickdet pitch that they started objecting to, then spread it to any new groups as well, which includes us and the frisbee golf club.

We are stalled again waiting for the city to decide, but it doesn't look good.  probably going to be back on the hunt for a new location.
