The ABATE in Ontario is planning on going ahead with their plans for a campground. They were recently denied their permit to hold a motorcycle rally on their property because they didn't have their rezoning papers in on time but held their event anyway.
The Mayor is upset and so are a bunch of the neighbors. Because the 50 acre parcel is in a fragile eco area with wetlands and  is also zoned as rural a number of the area horse farmers and others do not want to see a private campground in their community.

The ABATE - according to its neighbors and the various articles in the news has in many ways violated the local bylaws by allowing people to camp on their property. According to one neighbor there has been camping on the property since May.

According to the news reports, Local Pastor Daniel Cudney and his wife Bev would like to see some negotiation happen between the community and the ABATE as neighbors as they feel the good done by the rally for the local economy is very important.

Their application for re zoning will be heard soon, I wonder if going against the mayor's and councils wishes with regards to their rally will put them in tough or help them? We shall be watching and waiting to hear what happens.

As always, your feedback and input is ALWAYS very welcome...
