While many at the community forum appeared to have bought in to its promoters’ plan to ‘participate’ in ‘managing’ the OHV issue, many more expressed clearly articulated messages: We will not put up with OHV’s in our town. Several expressed they were going to move out of Silverton, some said they decided not to move here after the ‘intolerable’ OHV issue

of the last couple of years, while others said they and friends and family would not return unless and until OHV’s were no longer allowed in town.

One woman’s comment was brief but clear: Put it to a vote. It’s a ballot issue.
