Caring for Shorefront Property

ATVs and Motorized Vehicles on Conservation Lands

  • Island Pond Shorefront Owners
  • Commission members continue to spend a significant amount of time trying to address the ever increasing problem of damage caused to town lands by careless riders of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). We continue to follow multiple attempts at the State Legislature level to address this issue and are continuously trying to understand how these laws will apply to our town lands. For now, the Commission and the Atkinson Police Department encourage you to call the Department with any complaints about improper operation of these vehicles around your home. For more information please read ATV's and Wetlands (pdf).
