Friends of Hope Valleys is a non-profit grassroots organization our mission is the preserve the scenic, recreational and historic use of Hope Valley and Alpine County's eastern Sierra slopes. We support this grant application. As partners in creating the Alpine Winter Recreation Plan we view this plan as a positive means of achieving the goals of the plan. Signage, trail maintenance and avalanche awareness are all essential aspects of keeping the plan a success. Our group is very interested in the summer work that will be done on the OHV roads in the area. Lots more signage and restoration projects are very much needed. Adding gates to some roads for winter closure would also be also be important to be included in the projects. Thank you, Debbi Waldear Friends of Hope Valley – 3/21/16
