Gilpin schedules ATV ordinance for vote
Gilpin Supervisors are advertising a proposed ordinance that would make it legal to drive all-terrain vehicles on township-maintained roads, but not on state roads such as Route 66.
If the legislation passes, the township roads would be designated multi-use roads. ATV operators would be required to obtain a permit from Gilpin police.
To obtain a permit, ATV operators would have to provide their name, address, name of all operators for the vehicle, insurance carrier and policy number, and state DCNR plate numbers.
The ATVs would remain banned on state highways and state-maintained roads, including Ice Pond, Lovers Leap, Novinger and Schenley roads.
Supervisor Charlie Stull said the idea was proposed by a Gilpin police officer.
A vote on the proposed ordinance is planned for the supervisors’ July 8 regular meeting.
