ARIZONA – The Arizona State Parks department is hosting three workshops to provide input on the Statewide Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Program. According to the Arizona State Parks, the purpose of these workshops is to identify key issues related to OHV recreation in Arizona from all stakeholder perspectives and to gather information from all stakeholders to help the agency operate a comprehensive and effective OHV program.
The Statewide OHV Program administers grant funds from both state and federal sources, coordinates a statewide OHV advisory group and provides educational information.
BRC strongly recommends that OHVers attend one of these meetings and to insure your voice is heard. If you are not able to attend a meeting, please take the time to leave feedback for the OHV Program by completing an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/OHVComm. They will be accepting surveys until November 28, 2012.
