(With files submitted by Diana Drayman) Over 100 people turned out for a public meeting last night in Forest Grove to discuss an application for a temporary use permit to host mud racing events on property near Bradley Creek.

Approximately 35 speakers voiced concern and support for the permit, which would allow property owners Dave and Leanna Davies of 100 Mile Horsepower Ranch to hold sanctioned mud racing and camping events. Supporters talked about the economic impact while some residents voiced concerns over reckless driving and behavior on roads to the site.

CRD Chair Margo Wagner and other representatives were in attendance to hear the support and concerns of the public.

A decision on the permit will be made by the CRD board in the next few weeks.
