Forest Service Seeks Public Comment On State OHV Grant Applications

Sonora, CA...The Stanislaus National Forest announced a public comment period beginning March 7 on preliminary 2018 (G16) off-highway vehicle grant applications. Public comments may be submitted until April 3, 2017.



Forest recreation specialists have completed two draft grant applications proposing two off-highway vehicle projects for consideration by the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. The proposals were prepared under revised OHVMR program regulations that were approved in January 2016.

The proposed projects include Forest-wide operation and maintenance of OHV trails and facilities, as well as Forest-wide law enforcement patrols and visitor education. The OHVMV Division grants are an integral part of the ongoing success of the Forest’s OHV program.

The public comment period for grant applications begins March 7, 2017. The public is invited to review and comment on the preliminary application packages. The Stanislaus National Forest grant applications may be found at www.CA.gov’s on-line grant application website at http://olga.ohv.parks.ca.gov/egrams_ohmvr/user/home.aspx. Follow instructions on the website to locate the Stanislaus grant applications and instructions on how to provide comments. Stanislaus National Forest will receive copies of comments about their applications by the OHVMV Division.

The public comment period on the preliminary grant applications ends Monday, April 3, 2017 and comments must be received by that date. For information or questions related to the applications, contact Public Service Staff Officer Beth Martinez at (209) 288-6307.

They call the program a success? Off-roaders were expected to compromise while the Rangers would not. They've closed perfectly good roads for no apparent reason, including the one in to the shooting range at Candy Rock which is one of the best roads in the forest. We've gone from compliance to open to defiance. Catch me if you can.

    If there were any more officers patrolling we wouldn't be allowed to freely drive on that land. Even if we aren't doing anything wrong it's still annoying to be profiled, stopped and have to have to explain what we are doing. It feels like officers don't like us on their land.

      Wait until the "No People Zones" begin to kick in. You have not seen hard core restrictions yet.

"Forest-wide operation and maintenance of OHV trails and facilities"? What a crock of number two! They can't even have a garbage can at Sour Grass let along pick up garbage or say....manage our forest as it is.
I'm going to get off target here, but I'm MAD AND I KEEP GETTING THE SHAFT
Has anyone been to Malones lately? They closed the gates on the parking lot, glory hole point, the Visitor center and I can't get my wheel chair, or my scooter down because it's not handicapped accessible. I have a yearly pass, but it sure doesn't do me any good now that they closed the only parts I can access with a wheel chair or a scooter, I can't get under a closed gate. No I'm not in a wheel chair because of I didn't take care of myself, I'm in one because I fell through a burning roof years ago and broke my back.
It's situations like this is why you hear of lawsuits involving people who are handicapped and not being able to enjoy the benefits like others who have two legs. I know their are some things I can never do again (and I don't blame others for my injury) like go hiking in these great outdoor up one of our beautiful streams or rivers and cast a fly, but these bastards just took one of the few things I can do and enjoy, to keep cars out and now me too.
Please, stop and think for a second, be thankful for what you have, it can all change in a blink of an eye, and you could lose it all. It's all fun and games (and should be too) until someone gets hurt.
I'm done, I had to get that off my chest. NOW, for goodness sake, get out there and have fun AND BE SAFE DOING IT.
