AMA/District 37 Responds to Desert Fees
Posted August 14, 2003 - 11:53 AM
From www.cyclenews.com and www.district37ama.org .
In response to the Bureau of Land Management's planned implementation of user fees, and other important issues that involve some of the popular riding areas in the Southern California desert, AMA/District 37 has scheduled a series of public meeting to assist all interested parties in making comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report and Statement for the West Mojave Plan, according to Dave Oakleaf, AMA/District 37 legislative officer.
The plan will govern management decisions for the West Mojave region of the California desert for the next 30 years. The draft document is tilted toward species and habitat protection. Motorized recreation along with hunting, construction, mining, grazing, rockhounding and other activities that the public has enjoyed with little restriction in the past will be impacted. Those attending will learn how to add their input for the public record. District 37 racers will earn race points for attending.
For additional information, contact Bill Howell 760/321-1723 or Sandy Howell 909/218-9774.
