EA = Environmental Assessment. This is currently being done for new VORRA tracks as well as VtoR and others by a private firm since BLM was 6 years out or something like that.

Much of the Moapa Indian reservation is now being leased for solar and has eliminated many tracks that have been raced on in the past . The Moapa reservation still must get the environmental assessment under the BIA.

So where is Mint going?
Clark county has said the mint can run tell 2023 . You all need to understand this is what Clark county is asking congress to approve it's not a done deal. We all need to contact our congressmen and senators and inform them that this legislation bypasses public input and increases urban sprawl into desert tortoise habitat

The Clark county commissioners will be meeting to discus the county lands bill on Tuesday February 19th at 9am at the county building . What the county's plan is to take most of Jean NV that we can hold races 8 months out of the year , that has infrastructure like hotels and fuel and give OHV racers nelson hills that will only allow racing for 4 months and we can already use for races with no infrastructure . Laughlin that we can race now but unusable in the summer and the area west of I-15 going towards sandy valley that is loaded with turtles and only a mountain goat can get to 50% . The compromise is a big loss for OHV community . The OHV advisory committee recommended that the county boundary be moved to the north and keep the Jean dry lake valley for OHV use. Please show up in force so we can try to stop this

Receive a report from the Clark County Off-Highway Vehicle Advisory Committee; approve and adopt a resolution supporting the designation of three off-highway vehicle recreation areas on Bureau of Land Management land through federal legislation; and direct staff accordingly. (For possible action)

The county took the vote off the agenda due to the public outcry and have cancelled the next OHV advisory committee meeting for more input. SO I NEED your input on this give me your ideas



The regularly scheduled meeting of the Clark County Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Advisory Committee (Advisory Committee) for Wednesday, February 27, 2019 is canceled. The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, 2019 from 4 pm to 6pm at the Clark County Government Center in the Pueblo Room on the 1st floor.



The meeting is being canceled to allow members of the Advisory Committee an opportunity to further engage their constituents in the OHV community on a recommendation that the Board of County Commissioners adopt a resolution urging the Nevada Congressional Delegation to enact federal legislation that will designate three off-highway vehicle recreation areas in Clark County, Nevada. Attached is the proposed resolution and map that the committee unanimously voted to present to the Board of County Commissioners at its 2/19/19 meeting. This item was deleted from the Board of County Commissioner’s agenda at its 2/19/19 meeting. Following feedback from a variety of stakeholders, it became apparent that the original proposal needed additional vetting through OHV constituent groups and potential revisions needed to be considered by the Advisory Committee. Also, attached is a staff presentation that provides an overview of the proposal and identifies some of concerns raised to the County by environmental stakeholders regarding the proposed OHV recreation areas and potential ways to remedy those concerns.

Kenny: Have you engaged with SEMA as well as any aftermarket associations for bikes/UTV's to push their members that have a stake in this to get active?

We all know that the "core off road" suppliers manufacturers and 99.99999999... % of the shops and the core race industry, don't care as do a majority of the racers & big money teams. But maybe SEMA can help as they do have a pretty strong-active presence in the market and maybe they can help get some of the suppliers who will be affected to engage? Between aftermarket companies for jeeps/vehicles/UTV and handlebars there is a massive potential for loss as well as the precedent this sets that will impact them both short and long term.

Local voices count but the voice of a group of national entities couldn't hurt...

At the Clark County OHV advisory committee I proposed the Primm OHV area that would include the areas that we now race and recreate south of the Jean dry lake. It's not the best but it is a compromise with the county and that is what the county keeps saying we all need to give a little for the best out come. This area excludes any land that the county has in it's land bill and the future airport buffer zone , so it would not have ant issues with the proposes land development that the county has proposed. The county staff said that they would not support the Primm OHV area and would not recommend it to the county commissioners. That would give it a zero chance of being approved. What the county staff said is we need to stick with the proposed Sandy Valley OHV area that is west of Primm. The Sandy Valley OHV area has never held a competitive BLM event , so it would need a complete EA that would costs tens of thousands of dollars to the promoter that try's to hold a competitive event. I do not think any promoter will even try to do a race because of the terrain , not one trail runs from east to west or event north to south so it is completely worthless as an OHV area . The topper is Goodsprings , the small town next to the Sandy valley OHV area does not want it in their back ward. I have attached the BLM travail map of the area showing the Proposed Primm OHV area with thousands of miles of trails and the Sandy valley OHV area with maybe 150 miles . To the educated person the area with all the trails would look to be the best option for a OHV area , not the area that has not been used for OHV recreation. Call the county commissioners and let then know that OHV users are giving up about half of the Jean/ Primm area all we want is the other Half with the Primm OHV area office at (702) 455-3500

Call the number. Ask to be transferred to a commissioner. Leave a comment. Call back right away. Ask to be transferred to the next commissioner. Leave another comment. And keep going. Till you have left one with every commissioner. Then do the exact same thing tomorrow. Make their phone not stop ringing and they will get the picture.
