October Land Use Report By Bob Adams, 09/27/17

We can take hold of our future, or slide down the path of disparity”, borrowing a line from President Trump. We’re better by writing our own plans than reacting to plans proposed by others. This is a good time to plan our future because there so much in the works right now, and we have a favorable federal political climate to do it. NOHVCC (National Off Highway Vehicle Council) has stepped up to help us develop planning strategies and write plans. NOHVCC is funded by companies that manufacture OHVs. NOHVCC meetings Nov. 17th in Pahrump and Nov. 20th in Las Vegas. Let’s get ready now to make the most of those meetings by working together to write a preliminary TMP. Travel management plans should start with our inventory of sustainable trails. Putting a plan together takes a team effort.

Jean Adopt an Area I propose a 50 square mile area where we ride and that avoids the most trashed areas. I emailed the map to all. Got 3 responses back. We can proceed faster by email discussions leading to informal consensus, then come to meetings better to prepared for discussions and make binding decisions. Will the plan I proposed work? But the most important question, will you participate? By division of labor most of us will be looking at 1 or 2 play rides a year looking for and picking up trash. We need 6 to 12 team leaders to step up for 1 to 2 months a year to do light paperwork.
