Nice, the Commission is a joke. They get funded by green sticker money and then use that money to close your off road areas down. CA SUCKS!

How many freaking people want to get a piece of this trail.....now these guys? What on earth do these guys have doing, commenting on a trail run by the County and soon to be dictated by the Master plan that we all worked hard on.

There's more green sticker vehicles helping make sure that trail stays clean...we have many ATV users able to pick items down to zip strips and old pop tops that you just can't see in a Jeep.

AS the Rubicon Trail is a "non-maintained" county road the govt agency able to close the trail would be El Dorado and Placer counties. Maybe the seasonal closure is for the area from the chalet across the damns?

I think the idea is that they (Commission) would support the idea of seasonal closures and street leagal vehicles only by writing a letter showing their support. Maybe I misunderstand their purpose but I thought their agenda would be to look out for the very people that fund their positions. Apparently not?

Not, you are correct. Take a look at this list and see where they belong:

"California's Off-Highway Motor Vehicular Recreation Commission was created by the Legislature in 1982 to allow public input and provide policy guidance for the OHV program. The Commission's duties include: allocating funds for OHV capital outlay expenditures and OHV grants and cooperative agreements; certifying environmental impact reports; and considering adverse impacts on property in the vicinity of State Vehicle Recreation Areas, and recommending measures to the Division to reduce those impacts."

Praire City is how far from the Rubicon?

By commenting on the Rubicon, these guys are way out of their field. We need to remind them to stick to the parks.

That is what I was thinking to. They have no say over what happens on the Rubicon right? :confused:

You are so right! Since when does the OHV Commission get involved with or take a position on a Non-maintained county road?

This is one Green Stickered guy that is getting sick of this stuff :mad3:

We need to have a large presence at this meeting people!!!

The OHMVR Commission gets in the door because the county that claims the Rubicon received OHV Grant money to plan the installation of two water crossings/bridges. Under present regulations, the Commission can exert some control over the funds that the county would need to complete the project.

And who knows what other influence they may try to extert.

And the Carbon Footprint thing???How can they even entertain a highly debatable theory as Science?


They need to step off on that one too.

OHV Commission

Randii, Cruzila, Cal4, BlueRibbon, me and others are formulating a plan for this upcoming Comssion meeting right now, today. You'll hear more soon. But we will be there and we will make our case for the Trail -- for us.
Yes, they have influence, even tho they don't have actual jurisdiction.
Political influence can sometimes be stronger than jurisdiction.
