Open House to Discuss Grant Application for Tahoe National Forest Off-Highway Vehicle ProgramPosted: January 28, 2016
Okay, first off, the looooooong title was the Forest Service’s.
This open house is a great opportunity for the users and volunteers to voice their opinions on what we want the Tahoe National Forest to do for our OHV trails.
Please take the time to show up or to contact the FS with your thoughts on how you’d like your OHV funds spent. It’s much harder to change the grant after it written so get your comments in early.
NEVADA CITY, Calif. – The U.S. Forest Service is preparing an annual application to the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division, to request funding for trail maintenance, restoration, facilities development, law enforcement, and planning for off-highway vehicle (OHV) access.
On Thursday, February 11, 2016, the Forest Service will host an open house from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for individuals and organizations to provide input and review proposals for the application.
“I encourage anyone interested in the OHV program to drop by this informal open house to discuss their ideas on these proposals. Written comments are most helpful if sent by February 23,” stated Joe Chavez, Tahoe National Forest Trails Program Coordinator.
These annual grants provide important funds for the Forest Service to develop and maintain trails and trailheads, repair winter storm damage and restore trailside environments, plan for OHV trail and facility improvements, as well as provide patrolling and monitoring of these areas. When finalized, the grants will be available for public review and comment on the State of California’s website (http://ohv.parks.ca.gov) from March 8 – April 4, 2016.
