OHV Commission and Users Continue Fight with East Bay Parks

The following East Bay Regional Park District response (Sept. 13) to one of HQ’s longtime friends, Scott Sinclair, shows a high level of arrogance, ignorance, and callous against OHV recreationists in general, Carnegie SVRA staff, and proposed OHV use at the Tesla property which is part of Carnegie SVRA.

*Note their response did not address the March 2007 tour and two April 2012 tours with Save Tesla Park advocates. BRC found out about those tours via our public records act request. BTW – did any OHV groups get invited to the May 11, 2012 tour? I also believe if you look at the District’s own “surveys” you will find them to be biased or slanted to achieve a certain result.

Their response only further highlights the need for OHV users to attend the upcoming meetings

in Concord (TONIGHT), Oakley, Fremont, Dublin, and Richmond. The level of your participation will help decide if the District provides future OHV recreation and if they will back-off their current effort to prohibit OHV recreation on the Tesla property at Carnegie SVRA.

The OHV Commission recently voted unanimously to challenge the District Board’s effort to ban OHV use on our Tesla property. It is important to note that even the “environmental appointees” voted strongly in favor of the OHV commission telling the District to butt out!

Again, here is BRC Alert with list of meeting sites and sample letter http://www.sharetrails.org/alerts/2012/09/06/extreme-environmental-groups-collaborate-with-east-bay-region-park-district-to-impose-closureagenda-on-propose

Here is BRC News Release on Public Meetings with link to formal BRC comment letter http://www.sharetrails.org/news/2012/09/10/recreation-group-cites-east-bay-parks-violation-sunshine-laws

Also, feel free to check for updates with my good friends at the Carnegie Forever Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/groups/CarnegieForever/permalink/10150997989856599/

See you in Concord tonight!
