Thread: ORVAW Meeting March 5th @ 10am - Need GLFWDA Reps!

    I agree, with that Jim, I believe there are sort a 2 problems, but both come down to a lack of parking spaces.

    Even for dune ready, since they have to drive thru the parking lot, and often need to stop and let air out, or put the flag on etc.

    I believe the proposed system will be worse. If they eliminate the voucher center as they say they plan too, then people will have to do their check in at the gate, this will take much longer then it does right now. Check ID, buy ORV stickers, any other questions as there always is with a good number of people who are new, to the dunes, or the new system, this will lead to long lines even for the dune ready.
    I would like to see the pilot done on parking lot use, since there is a smaller number of vouchers here, and a bigger line problem with this user group.

    Looks like the next public meeting will be January 12th, and then taken to the NRC meeting on the 15th of January. No locations/times have been provided yet.

    The Department will hold a public meeting on January 12, 2015 in Oceana County to present
    these proposed changes, receive feedback from local citizens and ORV scramble area users, and
    address any remaining questions or concerns prior to the January 15, 2015 Natural Resources
    Commission meeting. The time and location of the January 12, 2015 public meeting will be
    provided in a future press release.

    This info needs to be plastered everywhere!

    And when I typed out my take on the issues I was negligent in considering those who need parking lot vouchers. I have never needed one so I didn't take that into consideration. I have never understood the argument that they are all out of room to make the parking lot bigger given the fact they made a voucher area parking lot. Why couldn't they use that and have the trailer-ed vehicles cross the road to the shoulder, after all we have road shoulder ORV right of ways all over the state now.

    I have put the Off-Road Vehicle Advisory Workgroup (ORVAW) March 5th Meeting on my calendar.

    As for the next public meeting on January 12th, I cannot put it on my calendar until the location and times are identified. (In that the meeting ought to be in Oceana County, I would hope we could depend on those who live within an hour to be able to attend this vital meeting.)

    I am not available for the NRC meeting on the 15th of January.

    Thank You for the heads up, I have saved the date (March 11th).
    My schedule works best when I can forecast the dates in advance. I put the remaining (May, August & November) dates on my calendar as well so I save the day.

    DNR voucher meeting will be held at the golden township hall, 6-8 pm Jan 12. There will be about 6 DNR reps there from Lansing and locally as well as Rep Bumstead

    this meeting is for user input, not the actual vote.

    If it's about lines on the road why not use the voucher parking lot? There is no need to park along the road and then move to the Voucher lot.
    My two cents!
