Forest seeks public comment on OHV grant application
The Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument is seeking public comment on a preliminary application to the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division for the 2012-13 grant cycle.
The public review and comment period for the State’s Grants and Cooperative Agreement Program begins today and ends April 1. State regulations require annual public participation in the fund allocation process.
The forest’s application, submitted through the California Internet-based On-Line Grant Application software, will focus on improvements to off-road vehicle routes, facilities, signage, developing an off-highway vehicle staging area on the Hume Lake Ranger District, law enforcement and education.
After the public review and comment process draw to a close, a final application, due May 6, will be submitted.
The public may view and comment on the preliminary application by visiting the State Grants and Cooperative Agreements program at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov and select the grants tab.
The Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division’s website provides further detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary application and submitting comments.
