ATV en VC Board Approves Adding ATV Use To Land Use Plan <p>The Vilas county board voted 15-4 last night to amend the county's land use plan to allow motorized trails on county land and roads. The vote is a victory for those seeking to overturn a 2004 referendum vote where a majority wanted no county ATV trails and a subsequent county board resolution banning ATV's on county properties and roads.</p> Wed, 23 Jul 2014 04:28:09 +0000 Ken Krall 21480 at VC Board Approves Adding ATV Use To Land Use Plan LDF Considers ATV Trail <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Lac du Flambeau officials are wrapping up an environmental assessment of a proposed ATV/</span>UTV<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> trail.
