This would be great. I hope the powers that be do not study this to death and draw it out for years. And no, I do not have anything to do with motor cycles.

It would be great to see something there. I drive by there everyday and think how sad it is to see it bare.. It would also be great for the local business'.

One of the cons is noise. Noise may well be attenuated by the proximity of the site to the freeway overpass but the neighbors to the south along Kentucky should be notified. They are the ones who will have to live with it. Motocross attempted to come to the Yolo County Fair several years ago and was rejected over noise concerns.

Oh that is a very good point. I was all for it until you brought up that point, the houses right off Kentucky would be really affected. Bummer. If it was only seasonal or one day out of the week I can see it being tolerated.

I think the fact that it is underground will mitigate the noise quite a bit.

Come back when you have a reasonable objection.

So lets take a look at this from the real facts.

1. Large amount of noise from the traffic on the freeway currently.

2. A significant amount of noise from Pirmi already in place.

3. Train tracks whistle blows crossing both locations on Kentucky Ave.

4. Tons of big trucks come down kentucky everyday and alot a night.

5. Large open space between the the houses and the proposed track.

6. Stop whining there is nothing going on in Woodland and thus keep driving visitors to other communities that embrace things that bring outsiders to Woodland.

For those homeowners who already suffer the noise, they do not agree to more noise. The trains do not go by very often, freeway is not noticeable and Kentucky is pretty quiet at night.

It is a valid point.

I live on Kentucky and I am for it. I don't know who you're kidding but the PIrmi plant is really noisy, especially the horn that sounds every hour! This town needs anything to draw more visitors.

The Pirmi is loud when they are blowing the horn, I am not sure they do it every hour, I only hear it sometimes. But the noise is a low rumble, we bought our home knowing this, but not so sure I would embrace this park..I hope it can go through with the least amount of noise.

Noise, snoise. It not like they are going to be riding their bikes at midnight. Let the kids have something to do, I rather have them ride their motorbikes than breaking into my car.

Build it! And, put the speedway / flat track in that was proposed for the fairgrounds as well. As for the potential noise issue: Dubach is sunken down and behind and below a very large berm - we call it I-5! The freeway traffic that passes over the overpass at East St sends substantially more noise out than a few dirt bikes will that are down in a hole. People, here's another opportunity to bring families from out of town to our community - families that will dine, shop, spend the night. I think it's a win-win.

As a local rider I would love to have something so that I dont have to drive 45 minutes and spend my money in another county (yuba-sutter, Sacramento).

I have seen multiple posts about the noise, I would like to put my two cents in. In the organized riding at motorcross tracks we are required to follow the 96dBA noise requirement law. This by comparison to some other things most people will be familar with...

1.Lawn mower ... 96 dB

Have you ever heard them mow the lawns at dubach from your home on kentucky?

Can you hear the harleys riding up I-5?

Due to the fact that it is sunken, the sound will be projected skyward, even if the person is getting huge air of a jump, the sound should be barely apparent from the nearest house.

In a time that the city needs money, I think that every opportunity to bring more of it in our community should be taken advantage of..

Great post: I would also love to support it, the freeway does not cause too much noise, Pirmi does at times, but it is livable. I would be very concerned with the noise but it does sound like it could be a non issue. Our community could use a boost and I would be excited to see something happen as well. I will let my concerns be known publicly so as to ensure this issue is addressed and my property rights are protected.
