ATV Committee

In 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. The Committee will devise a plan, including recommendations for the potential development of safe, cost effective and manageable options for ATV enthusiasts.
