Badlands Motorsports Resort
Many of you have written to us, after a feature was done on the CBC News, wondering what my opinion is. I thought I would answer the questions here in the newsletter.
We have owned the Inn for 12 years. The idea of the Motorsport Resort had been planted in some Calgary minds prior to our arrival here in Rosebud.
This is what I know so far…
The resort’s land is 5 kilometers east of our little Hamlet, down in a valley. I don’t believe we will hear it, but I certainly could be wrong. I asked the Resort’s rep to do a little test – have a very loud car go to the land and rev the motor, while we are standing on our deck, facing east. In that way, he might be able to ease people’s minds. He did not take my suggestion.
The land is part of Kneehill County; however, the farms butting up against it, to the west, are in Wheatland County (our County).
It will cater to “elite” vehicles, so that owners can take their vehicles off public roads, in a safe and controlled environment, to put their Ferrari’s pedal to the metal!!
The work that needs to be completed in order to bring water, sewer and proper road allowances to the resort is in the multi-millions of dollars. None of these have begun to be developed.
The spokesperson for the resort has given the impression that they will “save” our little town, by giving people jobs. You can imagine how that is going over.
I don’t believe I will be alive to see it operational…and I plan to live to be 110!!
