Default ORV Economic Impact Study needed

     

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I need to produce an economic impact study to present to the City Council depicting how much revenue would be generated for our community if we get the Sportsman ORV Trails Project approved.
If you have access to such a study, please forward it to me at harmony@okplus.com

If you donít have access to such a study, please help me develop one by answering the following questions;
Economic Impact
a) In the vehicle you drove/rode in on your last visit to an ORV park that charged for riding, how many people rode with you?
b) How much did it cost for each individual to ride?
c) Were there any camping/lodging costs involved? If so, how much for each night?
d) How many nights did you stay?
e) How much did you spend on fuel?
f) How much did you spend at restaurants?
g) How much did you spend on food/snacks at local grocery stores/quick stops?
h) Did you or anyone with you spend any time in town shopping for items not associated with ORVing?
i) Did you participate in any other events like boating, fishing, swimming, horseback riding or other event while on your last ORV outing? If so, please list them and the costs associated with them.
j) Please list any other costs you incurred while on your last outing to an ORV outing that charged for riding.

General Information
1) Please list the estimated ages of all those who went with you on your last ORV outing to a trail system that charged for riding.
2) How many male? How many female?
3) What did you like most about your trip?
4) What did you dislike most about your trip?
5) How many miles did you travel to get to the ORV Park?
6) How many days did you stay?
7) How many ORVs did you or your group take?
8) How many trips like you have described do you take per year?
9) How did you learn about the ORV Park you visited Ė flyer, word of mouth, brochure, magazine, signage, newspaper ad, radio, TV, other (please specify)
10) What is your annual household income? Under $10,000 $10,000-$20,000 $20,000-$30,000 $30,000-$40,000 $40,000-$50,000 Over $50,000 Do not give actual incomes please.

I appreciate you guys helping me with this very vital study. Please type your answers into an MSWord document and email it to harmony@okplus.com
I must have your answers and this study completed by this coming Tuesday morning August 10th, so please get your answers to me as quickly as possible.
Once I have the final averaged numbers, they will be available to anyone who wants them.

Thanks for your help,
James Hale

Thanks dude,
I have very little time to put this together so I appreciate you acting quickly.

I need more though. So far I only have four. Course, I just started this today so I guess that's pretty good at this point.

every time you post on it it moves back up to the top of the list

just like your last post did

just type in "bump" or use a dot (.) or something to bring it back up so people will see it

Another bump/question...

We don't have ORV parks (at least not that I know of), but I hit tracks all the time. Is this the type of info you are looking for?

I guess I have taken trips to SoCal and Mesquite NV this last winter too. Though I don't recall what it cost me.

Info on your past outing whether it was a race weekend, visit to a track, going riding on trails or the river, or whatever. It all matters and will apply. However, please "specify" which type of trip it was. This will give us a better idea as to who generates what kind of revenue to the areas they visit.

Thanks,
James
