The Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Commission will hold a meeting, on February 18, 2021. This is an additional meeting to the four regularly scheduled commission meetings. Among regular reports, the Commission may desire to send a comment to the California Coastal Commission regarding the approval of the Pismo State Beach and Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area Draft Public Works Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Report (PWP) (December 2020). The public can offer comments to inform the Commission’s comments on the PWP. The Commission may consider writing a letter as a group or the Commissioners may send in comments as individuals who are commissioners. If the Commission decides to write a letter, it may be drafted at the meeting or a draft copy may be brought back before the Commission at the February 26, 2021 Commission meeting. The comments made by the public at the meeting will not be considered actual PWP public comments. If the public has comments on the PWP, those comments shall submitted to the PWP per the instructions on the website https://www.oceanodunespwp.com/en/meetings.
The notice and agenda are attached and are also available on the commission webpage, https://ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=27160
As a result of the COVID-19 emergency and the Governor's Executive Orders N-29-20 and N-33-20, this Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Commission meeting will occur virtually through video and teleconference. There will not be a physical place where the public can go in-person to make public comments. The OHMVR Commission is conducting the meeting virtually to avoid public gathering and protect public health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The OHMVR Commission will be using the video conferencing service, Zoom, to host the meeting and allow for remote public participation.
