Off-Highway Vehicle Program Grants

Willows, May 25, 2007 - The Mendocino National Forest (MNF) is seeking public comments on its proposals for State of California off-highway vehicle program grants.

The State of California Department of Parks and Recreation, and the MNF have maintained a successful partnership for over 24 years, providing funding assistance for the management of off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation on National Forest lands through the California State OHV Cooperative Agreement Program. Current State regulations require annual public participation in this fund allocation process.

The MNF is soliciting public input specific to the Forest's 2007-2008 grant application proposals for Cooperative Agreements with the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Division. The agreements support OHV management activities on the national forest, including facility operation and maintenance, trail maintenance, law enforcement and restoration.

"The Mendocino National Forest has over 252 miles of designated OHV trails and over 1,100 miles of roughly graded roads available for use by non-street legal OHVs," said Jack Horner, Forest Recreation Officer. "We need your comments on our 2007-2008 grant requests going in to our partner, the State of California. Your comments will help the State determine the level of funding to provide the Mendocino for trail maintenance, facility maintenance, law enforcement, and restoration projects."

The draft proposals will be available for review on the forest website after June 8. Hard copies may be obtained now by contacting:

Jeff Applegate, OHV Program Manager
Mendocino National Forest
825 North Humboldt Avenue
Willows, CA 95988
Phone: (530) 934-3316

Please submit comments electronically to or to the above listed address, no later than July 1, 2007. (Note - Date has been extended to July 30, 2007)
