California Offroaders - San Bernardino OHV Ordinance Review

I know this is a California meeting, but it's a concern to everyone who wheels. The saddest part is that the people who want to close the lands down are doing so because we aren't making an effort. If you live in the area, come out and show your support.

*URGENT - OHV LEGAL ALERT*
OHV ORDINANCE REVIEW - SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY ORDINANCE REVIEW JULY 24th, 2007

(NEW DATE!)

PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE, PASS OUT THE ATTACHED FLYER & POST IT TO YOUR WEBSITES.


WE NEED A MAJOR SHOWING OF SUPPORT FROM THE OFFROAD COMMUNITY. Every rider, every member, every person in support of OHV Friendly Legislation must be present at the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisor's Meeting on July 24, 2007 to show support for the revision of Ordinance 3973. A great deal of effort has gone into the revision of this ordinance. Remember, San Bernardino County is the largest county in the country. Many popular OHV areas, such as Johnson Valley, Sunfair Dry Lakebed, Landers, Havasu Lake, Needles, Wonder Valley are all located in San Bernardino County. We ALL must protect these areas.

The Anti-Access groups intend to make a large showing at this Board meeting in opposition to the changes and to advocate against the OHV supporters.

As many of you already know, the offroad communities are in a serious fight to protect our property rights, as well as our rights to offroad. Without your support, we may not succeed.

A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH ANTI-OHV LEGISLATION IS THAT IT IS PASSED BECAUSE OHV SUPPORTERS ARE NOT PRESENT TO VOICE AN OPPOSITION. MANY OHV SUPPORTERS ARE UNAWARE OF WHEN/WHERE TO BE PRESENT. PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR MEMBERS & SUPPORTERS!

Sincerely,
Jenny L. Doling, Esq.
Legal Counsel to the OHV Legal Defense Fund

Tiny where did you get this? I went to Pirate and could not even find it posted and they are usually pretty quick to respond. It is posted there now. I also hit a couple other groups that I know are in CA area.
Good Job!

I found it posted over and MyJeepRocks. I'm going to try and get up there for the meeting, but my son is in summer school, so I have to find a ride for him that day since Big Bear is two hours away and I won't be able to take him or pick him up that day if I go.

I'd like to be a little more active and not just ride the trails they leave open.

That's not in Big Bear - the address at the top is San Bernardino. Looked it up and it is off the 215 and Foothill. Maybe a 45 minute drive. Still not close, but at least not 2 hours.

Very cool Eric, thanks. I hadn't gotten around to googling out the route yet. The kid can't miss a day, but I'm pretty sure I can find him a ride.

I sent an e-mail to the author of the message you posted Tiny and this is the response I got. It would seem to be well worth everyones time.

Here's the quick version of what has transpired....

SB County passed ordinance 3973 which is limits OHV riding in SB County. I've attached a copy of the ordinance for your review. This ordinance was a "compromise" between the Anti-Access groups and the 3-4 OHV supporters that showed up... basically, the Board of Supervisors had no choice but to pass this ordinance because there was very little opposition to it. The implementation of it is where we have our main problem. It has not been enforced consistently. There has been no training for enforcement officers, etc. The main issue we are advocating to overturn is the staging permit. If you have 10 or more persons on your PRIVATE property and an off-road vehicle, you must have a staging permit. This is obviously ridiculous and it's this portion of the ordinance that is being used to harass OHV supporters.

In California, we already had existing laws to address noise, dust, speed, etc. The Anti-Access groups are just trying to shut down all OHV activity. We have launched a major campaign to fight back. Your support is appreciated.

Attached is a flyer for the meeting. It contains, date, time, place, etc.

If you need any other information, please feel free to email/call.

Thanks,
Jen

Thanks Hackle. It looks like I'm going to make it to the meeting and if I can (crossing my fingers), I'll buy lunch for any WFer who wants to join me.
