Hello IOP Residents,

another person out, please take the tme or make the donaton to do so.

During our November Board meeting the topic of late-night airboat traffic in the park was discussed. With
the airboat group present at the meeting, we were able to solidify ground rules for the use of airboats in the
park that align with our existing park rules. Airboats can be launched and retrieved at the west end of the
park ;on the grassͿ during daylight hours ;dawn to duskͿ. During daylight loading and unloading operations,
they will make a conscious effort to be expedient and operate as quiet as possible. All other times, they will
be required to use the concrete boat ramp during launch and retrieval activities. To provide clarity to the
community and airboaters of the park rule’s, park signage has been
added stating: Airboat Ramp From Dawn to Dusk.
Last topic to bring to everyone’s attention. With the weather cooling
of and more people exercising outside, the backroads ;North and
South of CapriͿ are not a drag strip or racetrack for any type of
vehicle ;ϰ-wheeler, dirt bike, side-by-side, motorcycle, car, or truck.
The speed limit is Ϯϱmph everywhere in the IOP except for LMJ Rd.,
which is ϯϱmph. Please-Take a deep breath, relax, think clearly, be
responsible, and slow down.
IOP-Stay cool, safe, alert, healthy, friendly, small and slow down.
