Trustees Chairman Arnold Sandbothe told the board of trustees last week that after visiting with the Camden County Sheriff's Department which patrols public streets on Horseshoe Bend that the issue is off the table.

A move to increase the regulation of golf carts on streets within the Village of Four Seasons has been put on hold.

Trustees Chairman Arnold Sandbothe told the board of trustees last week that after visiting with the Camden County Sheriff's Department which patrols public streets on Horseshoe Bend that the issue is off the table.

Sandbothe said the CCSD doesn't want golf carts or ATVs on city streets or county roads, and the Village already has an ordinance on the books prohibiting motorized vehicles on the hiking and biking trails.

"Knowing the POA (Four Seasons Property Owners Association) is still working on how to address these types of motorized vehicles, we've decided to sit on the issue and see if there's anything we need to do," Sandbothe said. "We do see more and more golf carts and ATVs out there, and I know they have a concern about it. We probably need to address that jointly as two organizations so we understand. We're basically saying we don't want them on our hiking and biking trails."

The board has discussed increasing and improving signage along the trails to make the rules more evident.

Steve Yoder, a representative of the POA, told the board during Public Comment that "the POA doesn't have a dog in the hunt for golf carts on roadways, and we understand that's between you and Sheriff's Department. Our off-road stuff is on common ground, and have a resolution that we do not allow motorized vehicles on common ground."

Yoder said the POA did authorize one permit for a wheelchair-bound individual who wanted to use a motorized vehicle on a public road to access a fishing pond.

"We do have lot of our residents who want to have the ability to put golf carts on the road. That's our involvement. We're promoting it to you guys and working with the Sheriff's Department," he added.
