Residents, officials say addition to Interurban Trail would only bring trouble

    Almost two dozen Town of Port Washington residents turned out Monday night to let officials know they do not want Ozaukee County to create a mountain bike park in their midst.

    The Town Board listened to them during a special 90-minute meeting, then during its regular monthly meeting unanimously approved a resolution “strongly” opposing the creation of the park on 36 acres of county-owned land between Lake Drive and Dixie Road and urging the County Board to instead sell the land “to benefit all Ozaukee County taxpayers.”

    The resolution cited concerns about public safety and the difficulty in monitoring and patrolling the proposed park, as well as the remote location of the property, which is inaccessible except via the Ozaukee Interurban Trail.

    Board members also said they oppose the use of tax money for a park that will only serve a small segment of the population. If there are enough mountain bikers to require a park, the cyclists should buy the land and create the park themselves, they said.
