US Forest Service to host open house on Lake Tahoe OHV grants
« on: February 17, 2016, 10:08:48 pm »
Meeting will be February 25 in South Lake Tahoe

From the US Forest Service

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) will host an open house to provide information and seek public input on developing three preliminary applications for the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Cooperative Funds grants that will be submitted to the State of California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR).

The OHMVR grants would provide for OHV education and information, law enforcement patrols, resource and use monitoring, planning for winter travel management, and protection for both natural and cultural resources in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

The open house will take place on Thursday, February 25, 2016, from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Forest Supervisor’s Office, 35 College Drive in South Lake Tahoe. There will be no formal presentation. The public may arrive anytime between 5 – 7 p.m. and visit any or all of the three stations that will explain each grant application. Staff members will be available to explain the proposals and answer questions.

The 30-day grant application comment period begins Tuesday, March 8, 2016, and ends Monday, April 4, 2016.

For requests for reasonable accommodation access to the facility or proceedings, contact Adrian Escobedo at (530) 543-2758 or email aescobedo02@fs.fed.us.
