Hey everyone, there has been a lot of discussion lately about keeping trails open for wheeling. Please consider reading the below regarding Oceano Dunes SVRA. If this happens, then it just gives more power for the state to shut down other parks and areas across the state. If just half of us wrote one email, and cc'd the people at the end of this notice, it could make a massive impact on our future wheeling opportunities here in California. Thank you for considering everyone!

State Parks/county deal could end recreation at Oceano SVRA
We need your help NOW!

From Jeff Blewett, Cal4Wheel Natural Resources Consultant

State Parks has been bullied into a deal with the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (APCD). We have officially been set-up to incrementally lose all recreation opportunity in our park over the next five years starting November of this year!

State Parks and the county Air Pollution Control District agreed to a landmark settlement this week that officials say would reduce air pollution from Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area by about 30 percent by 2023 and cause some off-road riding areas to be closed this year.

The county Air Pollution Control District Hearing Board will hear details of the settlement and take public comment at a meeting on Wednesday, March 21, before deciding whether to accept or reject the proposal. The meeting is set for 9 a.m. at the San Luis Obispo City Council Chambers at 990 Palm St.

If this doesn't motivate you to speak out, I don't know what will. The time to act is NOW!

The best way to effect change is to write letters to the following people and ask them to investigate the validity of silica coming from the SVRA and what impact does the marine biological material coming from the ocean have on all the air monitoring data? Ask what percentage of dust is coming from the SVRA?

Let them know that until these vital questions are answered, areas of the Oceano Dunes SVRA should not be closed down!

Our challenge is to fill everyone’s inbox from the list below with mail. Just write ONE email and send it to everyone on the list below.

What should you say?
Make it personal, why do you like/love/enjoy the beach, make it real. Let them know we are tired of being used!

State the facts and ask them to investigate the validity of silica coming from the SVRA and what impact does the marine biological material coming from the ocean have on all the air monitoring data?

Ask what percentage of dust is coming from the SVRA?

I just need two minutes of your time to help save dune riding. WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW.

DO IT in the next 24 hours so we can strike while the iron is hot. Don’t miss this chance to make a real difference is the outcome of the dust issue. If 50% of the people who read this post send a letter just imagine the impact!
