Two 4 the Future
The Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing economic development through a recreational venue which educates and encourages the principles of safe and responsible motorized recreation. With our sites set on exceeding the expectations of motorized trail recreationists and their families, WORVPI is developing a 10,000 acre motorized recreation venue (Park) in Northern Wisconsin. Upon completion, this will be one of the largest motorized recreation areas east of the Mississippi River.
You may have read or seen one of the many news reports on our project?
As a Northern Wisconsin business owner, you realize how important location is to your success. I’m sure you’d love to own a tavern or restaurant directly across from Lambeau Field, adjacent to Miller Park, or maybe on Main Street in the Wisconsin Dells. Well, now you could have that same opportunity in your current location.
WORVPI would like your support in assuring that we’re able to bring 5000, 10,000, 20,000 or more visitors to Northern Wisconsin each year. These visitors will have an impact upon your bottom line no matter what business you’re in.
Our “Two 4 the Future” campaign encourages you to become a supporter of WORVPI now and pay later (when you’re experiencing the reality of those tourism dollars). You can become a WORVPI Small Business Member (Regularly $50) immediately at no cost to you! You read that correctly, you’ll become a Small Business Member, receive a small window/door supporter decal as a thank you gift, and it won’t cost you a nickel. In 2015 we’ll send you a renewal notice and you can decide if you’d like to continue your support of WORVPI.
Any way you look at it you’re a winner. You get a one year membership for free or two years for the price of one. Just complete a WORVPI Small Business Membership Application (available for download and PayPal on our web site at www.WORVPI.org) and return to WORVPI.
WORVPI Again Required to Clarify Inaccurate News Reporting
In the never-ending stream of inaccurate news reporting on our Off-Road Park Project currently underway in Forest County, on June 19, 2014 at 11:35am, the Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) asked Deputy Secretary Matt Moroney (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources) if the following was an accurate summation of Moroney’s letter to Forest County Board of Supervisors Chair, Paul Millan dated June 9, 2014:
“Can WORVPI have your permission to state that the purpose of your letter was to clearly reiterate that currently there is no reason to believe that Forest County and/or the Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) are not in a position to qualify for DNR grants and loans? That, in fact, the DNR is very interested is this project. And, that if Forest County & WORVPI meet the requirements established by DNR and any other requirements, their grant(s) and/or loan(s) requests would be given the same consideration as all other applicants.”
Mr. Moroney’s reply was, “That’s an extremely accurate summary and expresses completely the intent of my letter to Mr. Millan.”
WORVPI Responds to Inaccurate Accusations
Recently, the Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) responded to all the false information and accusations by assorted individuals from across Forest County by running our full-page rebuttal in several publications.
We’re happy to supply everyone with a copy of our rebuttal (see below attachment).

June 30, 2014
Off-Road Park Releases Feasibility Report
Forest County, Wisconsin – Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Incorporated (WORVPI) has released their Forest County Motorized Recreation Area Feasibility Report for public inspection at select locations throughout Forest County.
WORVPI contracted with North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRCP) to research and draft an independent, non-biased Corporate Feasibility Study relating to establishing a national vacation destination motorized recreation area in Forest County. Criteria for the Study included determination of customer demand and identification of environmentally/economically suitable potential site locations.
NCWRPC is a public agency dedicated to providing professional planning services in the areas of economic development, geographic information systems (GIS), intergovernmental cooperation, land use planning and transportation. In their over 40 years if service, NCWRPC has researched hundreds of studies for Adams, Forest, Juneau, Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, Oneida, Portage, Vilas and Wood Counties.
The WORVPI Study is divided into seven (7) unique sections; Background, Site Assessment, MRA Park Connectivity, Site Design, Implementation, Conclusion, and Appendixes.
The Report can be inspected at the following locations:

“Forest County ROCKS!”
Park Details Released
The Wisconsin-Off Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) released park details to the public yesterday (May 27th).
Immediately following a detailed and interactive presentation (involving all aspects of operation including funding, development, anticipated revenues and expenses), which lasted nearly 3 hours, to the Forest County Board of Supervisors WORVPI released information to the public. Avid motorized recreation enthusiasts will find updates provided by numerous media connections throughout the Badger State including; WJFW TV 12 – Rhinelander, WLUK FOX 11 – Green Bay, WXPR FM 91.7 Radio – Rhinelander, WRJO FM 94.5 Radio – Eagle River, and The Forest Republican – Crandon.
Information currently available to the public, via media sources, includes park location, phased in acquisition plan and the total proposed Forest County financial involvement. Forest County residents will note that any County support would be only a very small fraction of the amount erroneously promoted by those entities which have been outspoken against our project.
WORVPI is anticipating public meeting(s) at which Forest County residents will learn that the upside economic benefit to their county far overshadows any extremely limited county financial involvement.
Watch for breaking information on these meetings, as well as additional details not reported on TV, radio or print, in the days and weeks to come. As always, your best source for the facts will be on the WORVPI web site (www.WORVPI.org).
