USFS - Shasta-Trinity National Forest

  I would ask that any and all grants disseminated to the various Nation Forest Off-Highway Vehicle programs be limited to 50% of the proposed grant monies if that Forest abides by the California State OHV Green/Red sticker guide lines. Even though Riders of red sticker OHVs pay the full $52.00 bi-annual registration fees they  are limited to only partial year use in State SVRAs due to 'environmental' concerns of air quality.  Several National Forest districts have chosen to abide by the state mandated riding periods for red sticker OHVs even though there is no state mandated smog check program requirements for on road vehicles in their counties. Thank you for your time... David Cantrell - 3/13/15

  This is a huge increase in grant requests over previous years, but there are less “boots on the ground” then ever. And with no increase in mileage (a 2+ million acre national forest that has around 40 miles of open dedicated OHV trails is an outrage) but $200K is needed to administer it. I would like to see some kind of minimum ratio of management/enforcement grants : trail-mileage maintenance & development grants. This request is bigger than some dedicated OHV area's request. I would urge the commission to reduce the grant to a reasonable amount (and would hope to see an increase in trail development) Sincerely, Scott Linden Mount Shasta - 3/31/15
