OHVers Rock the House at East Bay Park's 1st Public Meeting

OHV Leaders from Carnegie Forever and AMAD36
Sign Into Event
The Recreation HQ wants to salute the 40-50 off-roaders who showed up to the East Bay Regional Park District’s 1st public meeting for the District’s Master Plan. OHV leaders and enthusiasts respectfully engaged the District staff and other stakeholder groups during the meeting and at various data collection sites/discussion tables.
HQ estimates that approximately 300 people crowded into a hall that had seating for about 110 people. This meeting was in Oakland and it gave OHVers in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties the chance to let the District know about the agency's lack of OHV opportunity. The District is 112K acres and contains 65 parks. However, not one square foot of parkland is designated for OHV use by the over 28K registered non-street legal OHVs in their jurisdiction.
HQ wants to STRONGLY urge all OHV enthusiasts to attend the remaining public meetings in Concord, 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.
