Motocross Facility Near Ione Ordered To Cease Operations 

A motocross facility outside of Ione has been slapped with a Notice of Violation and has been ordered by the County to cease operation.  The facility has been drawing complaints over noise will now go before the Amador County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.  The Ione Sands Motosport Park, located south of Howard Park on Highway 124, has been the subject of noise complaints for its weekend races, both in online forums such as Facebook and to County Officials.   In a Facebook Post, County Supervisor Richard Forster confirmed that the facility had received a Notice of Violation from the County that a motocross track was not compatible with the current zoning on the property and to cease operations.   KVGC has confirmed that an application for a General Plan Change, Zoning Change and Use Permit have been made to the County for the property.   If approved, the motocross track would be able to operate legally.   Following a review by County staff, the application will go before first the County Planning Commission, and then the Board of Supervisors for public hearings and approval.  The County could deny the application, or impose conditions of approval such as restriction on hours of operation.  The soonest a hearing could take place is February, but review of the project could take longer before it appears before the public.
