    OPRD seeks to fill three ATV Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee positions
    » Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:05 am

    The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is seeking volunteers to fill three positions within the newly developed All-Terrain Vehicle Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee. The successful candidates will serve on a committee alongside representatives from other government agencies.

    New committee positions include the following:

    • All-Terrain Vehicle users (two positions available)
    • Member of the public

    The Oregon Legislature established the All-Terrain Vehicle Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee in 2017 under Senate Bill 344 and tasked it with accepting, evaluating and conducting field reviews of proposed ATV highway access routes on portions of state highway rights of way.

    These members along with other committee members will consult with road authorities, law enforcement and other government agencies.

    The ATV Highway Access Route Advisory Committee will meet as needed at locations throughout the state to review, evaluate, advise and report on proposed access routes on portions of affected state highways.

    The Committee Interest Form is available through a link under ATV Committees within the menu section located online at oregonohv.org. Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Nov. 3, 2017.

    For more information, contact Jeff Trejo at jeff.trejo@oregon.gov or 503-986-0585.

    The successful candidate will also serve on the ATV Grant Subcommittee, which is responsible for reviewing and recommending funding of grants in support of ATV recreational activities statewide. Grant projects include operations and maintenance; law enforcement; emergency medical services; land acquisition; and planning and development. Approximately 60 applications need to be reviewed every other year. Computer access and experience is mandatory. Knowledge of OHV riding areas throughout Oregon is beneficial.

    The ATV Advisory Committee meets as needed up to four times per year at locations throughout the state to advise OPRD regarding ATV issues relating to safety and vehicle classifications. The ATV Grant Subcommittee also meets as needed up to four times per year at locations throughout the state, including field trips.
