It comes down to noise pollution
To the editor:
In the recent article regarding the West Earltown Motocross Track, Mr. Spencer describes the opposition as a cultural difference. It is not. It is a noise pollution problem.
Those opposed are long-term residents of the area, some born and raised here.
Operators of tracks who care about their communities require mufflers on the bikes using the facilities. Mr. Spencer’s son had a practice track in the area for a number of years that had no complaints from neighbors because it was located where the sound wouldn’t echo through the valley.
Mr. Spencer himself states he had events every weekend from Sept. 24 to Oct. 29 yet keeps saying it will operate on a limited basis.
After publicly stating that was the last event for the season, the noise continued the next weekend.
