RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin Indian tribe has voted for peace, quiet, and cleaner air.  

In a referendum, the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa tribe rejected a 23 mile all-terrain vehicle trail across their reservation. Thursday's vote was 126-79.  

The Lakeland ATV Club proposed the new trail. Some tribal members thought it would boost the local economy, while opponents cited the impact on wildlife and air quality.  

The Lac du Flambeau tribal council says it will keep looking for what it calls environmentally sound options for recreational and economic opportunities.
