Off-Highway Vehicle Grant Applications Meeting Planned in Bishop


The Inyo National Forest and the Bishop Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management have submitted preliminary applications to the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division for the 2010 grant cycle.

Both agencies are now requesting comments on this year’s applications. Preliminary applications will also be available for review Tuesday, March 2, through Monday, April 1, at the BLM and Forest Service offices at 351 Pacu Lane in Bishop, just behind the Department of Motor Vehicles office.

An open house will be held Tuesday, March 23, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Pacu Lane office. Representatives from the BLM and the Forest Service will be present to provide an overview of the proposals and will be available to answer questions, provide information and solicit public comments.

The preliminary applications being submitted this year continue the many important and ongoing efforts between the Inyo National Forest, the BLM, the California State Off -Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division and interested stakeholders at improving OHV opportunities on the ground. The focus of these grants includes improvements to OHV routes, facilities and signing, as well as restoration of impacted areas, law enforcement and educational programs.

The OHMVR grants provide funding to help protect, maintain, and enhance OHV programs.

The public may view and comment on these applications and all the other grant applications on the OHMVR Division website: http://www.ohv.parks.ca.gov/
