APPLETON โ€” The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites public review and written comments on a proposal by Swift County to obtain grant-in-aid funding for an expansion of the Appleton Off-Highway Vehicle Park.

Grant-in-aid is a cost-sharing program between the DNR, a local government sponsor and often a local club. The program funds development and maintenance of OHV trails.

The proposed expansion would add a skills area designed for off-highway motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle and off-road vehicle use, as well as a circle track designed for off-highway motorcycle use. The facilities are proposed to be constructed on separate parcels near the existing Appleton OHV Park.

(Find a larger view of the above map plus two additional detailed maps of the proposal below.)

The DNR will accept written comments until 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 5. Comments can be submitted:

  • Via email to kristy.rice@state.mn.us
  • Via mail to Kristy Rice, Acquisition and Development Specialist, Parks and Trails Division, 20596 Highway 7, Hutchison, MN 55350

More details can be found on the DNRโ€™s Appleton OHV Park webpage at mndnr.gov/input/mgmtplans/ohv/plans/appleton-ohv-park.html .
