I'm working on a zoning ordinance for a rural township. They have an issue with atv/dirtbike race tracks popping up on AG properties. None of them are businesses (yet), but they are mostly a place where family and friends convene and race around for a good time.
Some property is even owned by the family who owns Fox Racing (motorsports gear/appearal company) and they throw a big riding day to debut new stuff, but nobody is paying admission so they don't consider it a business activity, and so far its been allowed on AG land. The Board wants to put an end to that.
Anyway, when I google "race track zoning definitions" I mostly get stories about definitions being challanged. Some say it needs to be a compitition with a start and an end and winners. Some say if they don't charge admission it is just a private recreational use that should be allowed.
Anybody have a good definition? Thanks.
