Giant step forward- Supervisors Eliminate Permit Requirement from Ordinance

On March 23, 2010 the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, lead by our county supervisors Brad Mitzelfelt and Neil Derry, voted to remove the staging permit requirement from the Off-Road Vehicle Ordinance 3973.

In its place, staging will now read as: Staging shall be permitted on private property of no less than two and one-half acres in size, for no longer than six days in a 30-day period.

Well Done FOGR


Thank you! ...EVERYONE!

The Slash X Run
As we expected the turnout was small due to the weather. Rick stuck his Cherokee on Means Lake. All five dry lakes we encountered were very much full of water. Rex missed the boat and took the high road back to the cabins. The remainder of the expedition left means and crossed Melville Lake without incident.
The flats on the way to Soggy Lake were washed out and impassable. From on top the small dunes, some folks call them the razorbacks we picked out a route that left us south of Johnson Valley open area on what I have to assume were CSA roads.

In Case You Didn't Know...
It’s a matter of record. The Supervisors expressed reservations about the workability of OHV Ordinance #3973 at its adoption hearing over three years ago. But, they heard no opposition at that time so they agreed to give it a one year trial to see how it would fly! (Video available from Clerk of the Board)

Friends of Giant Rock find ordinance change acceptable.

Friends of Giant Rock find ordinance change acceptable.In August of 2006 the San Bernardino County Supervisors enacted OHV Ordinance 3973. After hearing many arguments against the staging permit, which requires a $155 permit from the county applied for four to six weeks in advance by property owners who would have more than nine persons at their property for the purpose of riding an OHV, The supervisors agree that personal property rights and invasion of privacy may be an issue and agreed to look more deeply into the validity of a staging permit requirement for individual family’s use of private property.
