R/C race track proposed in Bishop

rcraceWhen the Bishop City Council meets Monday night, officials will hold a public hearing on an environmental review of a radio control race track project at Bishop City Park.

Local residents used to enjoy an improvised track on Los Angeles Department of Water and Power land outside Bishop, but DWP finally banned the facility.  Residents approached the City Council with the idea of a track at City Park.  They even demonstrated the radio controlled cars and let council members try them out.

The Council will take input on an initial study and Negative Declaration to allow Owensville R/C Racing to build and maintain a race track for radio-controlled vehicles at City Park.  The Council will consider adoption of the Negative Declaration and Notice of Determination for the club’s project.

In other business, the City Council will hear a report from the Parks and Recreation Commission on a recommendation to increase of the number of commissioners from five to seven.

The Bishop City Council meeting was scheduled to start at 7pm at Bishop City Hall.

    I hope that this gets a big NO vote….I think the cars are great in an individual’s home, but having them all together is the beautiful City Park is NOT a good idea for the everyone who goes to the park to enjoy the beauty of nature….cars buzzzzzzing around a track is not what I want to see or hear when I go to the park! Please say NO!

    Please vote this down, I don’t want my tax dollars spent like this. If the RC people want a track they can raise their own funds and build it. Can you imagine what other people will be requesting if this goes through?
