Public Input Sought For Off Highway Vehicles Funding

CLOVIS – The Sierra National Forest is requesting public input for the 2014 State Off-Highway Motor Vehicle (OHV) funding/proposal submission cycle by hosting an Open House Dec. 5 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Forest Headquarters, 1600 Tollhouse Rd in Clovis.

This year the State has funds available for education, operation and maintenance, law enforcement and restoration projects, and the Sierra National Forest will submit an OHV grant application for this funding.

As part of the application process, the Sierra National Forest is requesting public input/project ideas on what individuals and organizations would like to see included in the 2014 submittal.

Each year the State of California makes funding available through the OHV Grants Program. The grants program provides financial assistance to eligible agencies and organizations (federal, city, county, nonprofit, etc.) that develop, maintain, operate, expand, support, or contribute to well-managed, high-quality, OHV recreation areas, roads and trails.

Public input will be gathered at the Open House or written comments may be submitted to: Sierra National Forest, Attn. Susan Burkindine, 1600 Tollhouse Road, Clovis, CA 93611. Comments regarding the 2014 State OHV funding proposal are needed by January 10, 2014.

For more information, please contact the Sierra National Forest at one of the following locations: Clovis 559-297-0706, North Fork 559-877-2218, or Prather 559-855-5355. Information is also available on the Sierra National Forest web site at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/sierra/.

  1. No to Off Highway Vehicles in the Sierra’s. How can they even consider this when they are trying to take away the horses in the Sierra’s? Does not make any sense. Keep the horse trails and hiking trails. No to ATV’s and bikes. They are many other bike trails elsewhere, and ATV parks.
