They hit the muddy slopes of a proposed playground for four wheel drive vehicles and paintball players.

Land owner Kelly Straughen wants to open up his private park to the public. He needs a land use permit to do that. Some neighbors are concerned ... and county supervisors are asking a lot of questions.

Supervisor Pablo Cuevas asks, "Is it compatible with the area? How does it affect people's land values? The safety factors involved with it? What impact does it have in this area and the community as a whole?"

Topping the list of concerns are noise, safety, pollution and more Route 11 traffic. But Straughen says this type of entertainment is in high demand.
