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.
It would be great to have everyone to to that, it takes some time but the reward is worth it

I haven't followed this as closely as I should have, but any update on this issue?
Currently no action as the environmentalists do not like the OHV areas added to the bill that the Clark county put in , the areas the county proposed for OHV will not support racing

Cortez Masto’s draft legislation, which is based on the county’s proposed bill, is similar to what the county asked for, but offers more concessions to the conservation community. It would expand Clark County’s development boundaries by up to 42,427 acres; the county requested 56,102 new acres on which to build. Development proposals within the expanded boundary would still be subject to local review.


“This draft legislation reflects extensive efforts to bring together Southern Nevada stakeholders to develop a proposal that prioritizes Clark County’s long-term conservation and economic development goals,” Cortez Masto said in a statement. “As the Las Vegas Valley grows, we must start laying the ground rules for sustainable expansion and economic development, while also addressing the looming threat of climate change and protecting our natural resources and desert wildlife.”


The draft legislation would create 308,110 acres of new wilderness areas — over three and a half times more than the 82,707 acres requested by the county — and would expand Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area by 68,078 acres. It also replaces the county’s request for 298,052 acres of areas of critical environmental concern (ACECs) with 353,716 acres of “special management areas.”

Senator Cortez Masto wants your input on her proposed lands bill that will close over 700,000 acres of Nevada by creating 308,110 acres of new wilderness areas and would expand Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area by 68,078 acres. It also replaces the county’s request for 298,052 acres of areas of critical environmental concern (ACECs) with 353,716 acres of “special management areas.” This would eliminate 98% of Clark county to competitive events and restrict recreation use almost as much. Zach Zaragoza is the state director for the senator and he would like your input by February 5th . Here is his email Zach_Zaragoza@cortezmasto.senate.gov The 1st map is what the senator wants the 2nd is what will be left

Please be respectful in your email to Zach and explain that you visit Nevada because of OHV events and this bill will stop OHV events

Just sent a respectful email to oppose any more land grabs. Enough is enough.
Thanks Robert, what has been proposed to be left open to OHV use are the mountains west of Primm that do not have a connecting trail so you could maybe get a 8 mile loop. Nelson hills is about the same maybe 20 miles but there is a 100 max . Laughlin does not have a connecting loop so you are at 15 miles and nellis dunes is cut in half with PM-10

Kenny,
Im a little unclear on the maps and the areas her proposal would block off. How does this dovetail with the land that the county has authorized for development? I assume these don't overlap?
It has everything in it that the county wanted plus about 80,000 acres more for red rock and 270,000 acres more of wilderness
