OHV information sought

The U.S. Forest Service is seeking input about off-highway vehicle use in the basin.

The agency spends about $100,000 annually on its off-highway vehicle program, which provides recreational opportunities for motorcyclists, three-wheel and four-wheel all-terrain vehicles and four-wheel drive Jeeps.

Nearly 13,000 people recreate on 12 miles of trails and 20 miles of roads in the basin. The Forest Service wants input on how to better serve these recreationalists in order to obtain funding from the California Off-Highway Vehicle Division.

The Forest Service’s off-highway vehicle program oversees issues such as wildlife monitoring, operation and maintenance, and law enforcement and patrol activities.

People who can’t attend the meeting, should send comments to U.S. Forest Service Attn: OHV Program Manager, 870 Emerald Bay Rd.
