You should toss this up on the main MX board. Tracks are tracks and it all comes around.

The track was built on private land with full support of the owner. Because their land falls in the Niagra Escarpment region they needed a permit to build such facility. The Niagra Escarpment Commision (NEC) has forced them closed and the track to be leveled or face fines. Although they have the support of the community (apparently) the NEC has expressed their disapproval for this place and is being reluctant on issuing them a permit.

BTW, I have never been there. I just know of the place and would love to see such a track in the Barrie area.

This has a great deal more to do with neighbors not wanting the traffic in there area. It is a well to do country area that didn't even want an equestrian event held there without police traffic control.
From what I hear the neighbors are using all meens ( ie. NEC ) to get it shut down.

Seen on the news last night that the counsel voted to still level the track. I didnt catch all the details but looks like its the end of the road...
