ATV Committee

The Town has taken a hard look at the ATV Bypass Trail concept and has worked tirelessly toward the establishment of an alternate route over the last number of years. While the Town’s commitment to the project has been genuine, it is obvious that the previous vision and approach is not turning out desired results. In early 2018, the Town issued a call for Expressions of Interest for individuals to form the Conception Bay South ATV Advisory Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to provide information and advice to the Town on matters concerning ATV issues. It will devise a plan, including recommendations, for the potential development of safe, cost effective and manageable options for ATV enthusiasts.

The Committee, made up of local ATV enthusiasts, has been in place since September 2018 and are meeting regularly in collaboration with Town Staff and Council. In the future, subcommittees will be in place to work on specific projects and initiatives.

ATV Committee Members
Vacant (Chair), Mitch Somers (Vice Chair), Kim Sutton (Secretary), Rick Nosewothy, Steve Butt, Doug Piercey, Harold Burke, Tanya Strickland, Chris Summers, Dean Newman, Justin Cochrane, Peter Welsman. Council Liaison: Councillor Paul Connors. Should you wish to reach out to the Committee, please email

ATV Staging Area

The ATV staging area is located in Seal Cove. It is infrastructure that the Town built a few years ago, in partnership with Avalon T’Railways, for recreational riders to be able to access designated riding trails in a safe and legal manner.
