Public Invited to Provide Input for Bakersfield BLM OHV Grant Proposals


Starting today through April 7, the public is invited to comment on applications the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) submits to the California State Parks and Recreation Off-Highway Vehicle Motorized Recreation Division.

Preliminary applications are available on the division website at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov for review and comment through April 7. The website also provides detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary application and submitting comments. Public comments should be submitted to both the OHMVR and to the appropriate BLM field office by April 7.

Comments or questions on the BLM Bakersfield Field Office applications should be submitted to Jamie Jalving, Outdoor Recreation Planner, at jjalving@blm.gov (661) 391-6120.

The OHVMR grants and cooperative agreements program supports well-managed off-highway vehicle recreation in California by providing financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal agencies (including the BLM), state agencies, educational institutions, federally recognized Native American Tribes and nonprofit entities. BLM applies for grants from the Off Highway Vehicle Division each year to help fund and coordinate its off-highway vehicle program. The grants support OHV management activities such as law enforcement, resource protection, planning and monitoring, visitor services, and maintenance on BLM lands throughout the state.
