CALIFORNIA - CARNEGIE/TESLA ACTION ALERT

WHAT - Attend Carnegie SVRA/Tesla Public Meeting

WHEN - Tuesday, November 12, at 7:30 p.m.

WHERE - Pleasanton at the Amador High School on 1155 Santa Rita Road 

As many Bay Area off-roaders already know, the California OHV Division will be hosting an open house to present the preferred concept at a series of work stations.  This is an update on the General Plan process and the preferred concept. The preferred concept was developed based on detailed resource and constraints information, and on stakeholder comments received on the three concept alternatives presented in June/July 2013.

Normally these types of public meetings are low key affairs attended by users of the park.  However, the Carnegie SVRA/Tesla/East Bay Regional Park District fight has become a regional battle between hard-core anti-OHV groups and those of us who support responsible OHV use on land purchased with OHV Trust Fund monies back in the 1990s.

The Sierra Club upped the ante on November 6 when they issued an alert to their Bay Area supporters to come and overrun the meeting.   Just as the OHV community responded with massive turnouts during the East Bay Park public meetings last year, BRC is asking you to do the same on November 12.

BRC BRINGS NEW SUIT TO RESTORE TRAIL ACCESS - WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Recently, The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) filed a complaint against the Federal government to challenge the arbitrary closure of, "Trail 38," a high value single-track motorcycle trail in Wyoming. The BRC Legal Program is representing a local AMA District club and local users in the case. "Though the trail mileage is small, the stakes are high," said J.R. Riggins, a plaintiff in the suit and Wyoming dirt bike rider. "The Forest Service apparently thought it could fly under the radar and close this trail without meaningful
