There is, off of rt 28 there is a 50 acre parcel that will be sold pending the appoval of this track. We are proposing to build a motorsports park. It will be mainly focused on motocross racing/practice, possibly snocross in he winter.

We have already done sound testing, and will be building sound barriers in two spots where noise is noticeable to the abutters. The track will follow the AMA sound limit for closed course competetion, and could possibly be lower than that. We are looking to keep everyone happy and not cause any trouble.

Thanks, Josh

I cannot see the track interfering with your hunting area, as it is on private property in an open pit-like area. The current land owner is an avid hunter, and is all for the track, so I assume it will not bother any good hunting spots in the area.

Josh, I wish I had known, I'm a member of MVTR (the largest trail bike club in the state) an I wish I could've told people at the meeting last night. Hopefully it will be mostly a practice track as there isn't one in NH that is committed to open practices. Let me know if you need any help an... if you like, post this on nedirtbikes.com (new england dirt bikes) as you'll probably get alot bigger response than on here. Let me know if there's anything I can do, ie. contact the club, bring it up at the next meeting, etc... most of the members are not motocrossers but are harescramble racers and enduro riders but most like to hit the track every once in a while.
