BLM Seeking Comments on Off-Highway Vehicle Grant
This is a press release from the Bureau of Land Management:
ARCATA, Calif. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Arcata Field Office is holding a public meeting and accepting public comments regarding management needs and projects that would benefit off-highway vehicle recreation on public lands. The public meeting will be held at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at the BLM Arcata Field Office, 1695 Heindon Rd., Arcata.
Field office staff will use public comments to develop a preliminary grant application to the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Division. Public comments must be submitted by 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 23.
“This grant program helps us provide quality opportunities for local residents and visitors who enjoy OHV sports,” said BLM Arcata Field Manager Molly Brown. “Partnerships such as this are vital to managing sustainable public lands for multiple uses.”
The public can also submit comments by mailing them to the BLM Arcata Field Office, 1695 Heindon Rd., Arcata, CA, 95521, with attention to Casey Hague, or email email@example.com. Hague will also take comments by telephone at 707-825-2322.
The BLM will submit project proposals by March 5. A 30-day public comment period will begin March 6. Project proposals and cost estimates will be available for review beginning March 6, at http://ohv.parks.ca.gov.
The BLM can use grant funding for education, law enforcement, trail monitoring, maintenance, construction, development, safety improvements and road repairs. In past years, the Arcata Field Office has used grant funds at the Samoa Dunes Off-Highway Vehicle Area near Eureka.
