REDDING, Calif. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Redding Field Office will hold a virtual public meeting and is accepting public comments regarding grant funding proposals that would benefit off-highway vehicle recreation on public lands in northern California.

The virtual meeting is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 22, at 5 p.m., via Zoom.  Those interested in participating can register by visiting https://blm.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_oXctuLHeS56iWnpVvvSULg.  Those who register will receive a confirmation email with instructions for joining the meeting.

The field office will also accept comments sent by email to szaffara@blm.gov, or mailed to Bureau of Land Management, 6640 Lockheed Drive, Redding, CA 96002, attention: OHV grants.  The comment period is open until Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 5 p.m.

“We are planning to submit grant applications for ongoing maintenance at the Chappie-Shasta OHV Recreation Area, and for supporting enforcement of OHV regulations,” said BLM Redding Field Manager Jennifer Mata.

The Redding Field Office staff will use the comments to develop a preliminary grant application to the California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. The BLM will submit project proposals to California State Parks on March 1. Anyone interested can review preliminary applications by visiting the grants section at http://ohv.parks.ca.gov from March 2 through May 3.

The Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program supports off-highway vehicle recreation in California by providing financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal and state agencies, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and federally recognized Native American tribes.
