BLM Ukiah Field Office seeks public input for off-highway vehicle grants

UKIAH, Calif. —The Bureau of Land Management Ukiah Field Office is seeking input from the public on how to improve off-highway vehicle trail safety and maintenance on public lands throughout Central California during a virtual public meeting on Thursday, Feb. 22., at 5:30 p.m.

The public must register to participate in the virtual public meeting at: Registrants will 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 discuss with BLM staff ideas for changes or improvements that can help enhance outdoor recreation,” said BLM Ukiah Field Manager Nicholas Lavrov. “The BLM will use the public feedback to prepare grant applications to the California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation 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 off-highway vehicle 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 California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division no later than March 4 and will be available on the division’s website from March 5 to May 6 at, for additional public review and comment. The website will provide detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary applications and submitting comments.

Public comments must be submitted to both the California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division and to the BLM Ukiah Field Office by May 6. Comments may also be emailed to the BLM at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
