BLM Ukiah Field Office seeks public input for OHV grants

UKIAH, Calif. —The Bureau of Land Management Ukiah Field Office wants to hear ideas from the public on how to improve off-highway vehicle, or OHV, trail safety and maintenance on public lands throughout Central California at a virtual public meeting on Thursday, Feb. 16, at 5 p.m.

The public must register to participate in the virtual public meeting. Registrants will then receive a link and phone numbers to join the meeting. Please contact the BLM for reasonable accommodations to participate.

“This public meeting will give off-highway vehicle users a chance to visit with BLM staff and discuss changes or improvements to enhance outdoor recreation,” said BLM Ukiah Field Manager Nicholas Lavrov. “The BLM will use public feedback to prepare grant applications to the California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (Division) Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program for law enforcement, restoration, and ground operations and maintenance projects.”

The Division supports well-managed off-highway vehicle recreation in California by distributing more than $30 million annually collected from gas tax, entrance fees and OHV sticker registrations.

Cities, counties, districts, federal and state agencies, educational institutions, federally recognized Native American Tribes and nonprofit entities can apply for funds to develop, maintain and restore trails; provide law enforcement; and offer safety and training for riders.

Preliminary applications must be submitted to the Division no later than Mar. 6 and will be available on their website at for additional public review and comment from Mar. 7 through May 1.

The website will provide detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary applications and submitting comments.

Public comments must be submitted to both the Division and to the BLM Ukiah Field Office by May 1, 2023.
