OHRV support and participation is growing and the North Country is feeling it!
There’s no denying there is a growing presence of OHRV enthusiasts here in Coös County, and the numbers are backing it up. Harry Brown, President of the North Country OHRV Coalition, joined us last week for our bi-weekly club meeting and shared some rough numbers with us. For example, more and more OHRV’s are being registered here in NH; in fact, the state has reported a 12% increase in OHRV registrations in 2013. This is great for ‘our neck of the woods’ because many of those machines get trailered here and their owners patronize our local businesses. Need proof? The State of NH has reported a 13% increase in rooms and meals tax collected in Coös County, right in our backyard. Is it a coincidence this new revenue comes as Ride the Wilds is officially opened?
We don’t think so: Registrations are up, people are coming up to the North Country to experience the Ride the Wilds trail system, and dealers are reporting record breaking ATV sales numbers.
We need your help in continuing to boost our local economy.
We are very excited about the impact our club and members can have on our local economy. In the next few months, we’re going to be seeking new ways for Lancaster and the surrounding areas to benefit from this economic boost! Enthusiasm is growing and with it, comes an increase in recreational spending, just what Lancaster and the rest of Coös County so desperately needs.
Stay tuned for updates on how our club will be actively seeking support for a clear, safe and responsible path to boosting our local economy even more.
