Riding Park Ordered To Reduce Noise
The All-Terrain Vehicle Association reports that Washougal Motocross Park in Washington state has been ordered to reduce noise.
Washougal hosts one leg of the American Motorcyclist Association Chevy Trucks U.S. Motocross Championship Series, and attracts an estimated 100,000 racers and spectators a year.
Washougal is 31 years old and only recently have residents moved into homes near it. Clark county, where Washougal is located, allows the park to operate under a conditional-use permit, which subjects the park and its owners to a continual review.
According to the ATVA, new rules say that racing cannot begin until 7 a.m., and must conclude at 10 p.m. The loudspeaker system is restricted to 35dB, from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. — except during the AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Motocross Championship Series event.
