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.
