Greetings from the Orillia District Snowmobile Club.

After many years of effort by the ODSC, the community, and Mayor and Council, the City of Orillia is preparing to adopt an Official Plan that includes Snowmobile Trails. This is a very important document as it reflects Orillia's status as a "Snowmobile Friendly" Community and ensures all future development in areas with snowmobile trails have crucial guidelines with respect to maintaining those trails. Regrettably, there are elements within our community that do not support this important process. These groups, while the minority, have made a significant effort to paint a negative picture of our snowmobiling community. As a club, we have maintained a positive and successful information/education campaign through the media. At this time, we are asking for support from you, our snowmobiling family.

We are asking that you take a few minutes and send an email to Mayor and Council supporting their efforts regarding the inclusion of Snowmobile Trails in the City of Orillia...Please Remember...they are on our side...we just want them to realize how important this matter is. Below is the email address and sample letter:


To Mayor and Council – City of Orillia
Reference: Official Plan
I commend the City of Orillia for recognizing the value of organized snowmobiling as a winter activity
and an important source of tourism activity. “Snowmobile Friendly” communities are well supported by me
and my fellow snowmobilers.
The vision and foresight to include Snowmobile Trails in the Official Plan for the City of Orillia is very much appreciated.
Yours truly,

Please note that correspondence to Mayor and Council on this matter will only be received until Feb 12th...next Friday.

For those who are interested, Letters to the Editor at our local paper will also be appreciated...our opponents have used this forum to challenge the value of snowmobiling within the community as a recreational activity and an economic stimulus. They have also gone to great lengths to portrait us as a reckless bunch of crazies.


Your support is greatly appreciated.
