E-M:/ Race track noise

Re: Race Track noise

A quick survey of folks in other states reveals that race tracks are
apparently taking off in several states.  IL reports three or four proposals
for 60 to 100 K seating capacity facilities, and they point to the problems
related to sprawl (roads, overwhelming sewage capacity, etc.) as the bigger
concern than noise, although noise is a big issue.  MD has a proposal that
sounds similar, and NH indicates that they are trying to get a handle on the
noise issues as well.  

I am wondering if there is anyway you can link up with folks in other states.
One other question -- is this the same proposal that bopped around from one
1400 acre parcel of state land to the next until the DNR finally said not
here, not anywhere?  Or is this a new proposal?
