S.B. 1316, Giving away Carnegie, Again

Introduced by Senator Glazer
(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Baker)

They just don’t stop...

update 7/13/18

I just talked to Erika at Assemblymember Kalra's office and she said the bill has been re referred to the Appropriations Committee.

I think that letting your Assemblymember and State Senator know that you care and are paying attention and that you vote and you have friends that vote too is important.

You can find status here:
http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/fa...01720180SB1316

Back to your regularly scheduled programming:

...bill would authorize the department to dispose of the portion of the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area known as the “Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area” to permanently preserve that land for conservation purposes...

Hell, the text of the bill would have you believe there is no public use currently occurring!

Call your State legislators.

There is no public use currently occurring on THIS section of Carnegie. This is the expansion property. Carnegie SVRA is working on the necessary reports to open this property to motorized use.

Ride on

From our friends at CORVA (where Brewster is a major dude):

Working on it. An organized approach is being planned. BUT I need to remind each of us that this is not the state or our park staff. OHV recreation has had several wins recently (the renewal of our program, the end of the OW (Octilla Wells SVRA) lawsuit) and the state has been firmly in our court. What I am doing this weekend is writing down everything I find objectionable in this bill, there’s nothing I could accept, so lm busy, but this will be important. Also we should let our friends know this is happening. I think we will need to raise some money for legal and lobbying but that is premature...

I have created this:

The Honorable Steve Glazer
California State Senate
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 05829

Re: SB 1316 (Glazer) Off-highway vehicular recreation: Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area: Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area (As Introduced February 16, 2018)
Position: Oppose

Dear Senator Glazer:

The subject state park has been created to serve as an ecologically friendly and managed area for off highway vehicle (OHV) recreation. As populations have grown and open space has become increasingly scarce, these OHV parks are even more important to meet the needs of the public.

The OHV community is often misrepresented as hooligans destroying the landscape. In reality we are doctors, lawyers, engineers, architects, electricians, firemen and… everything.

We are families. We love the outdoors and like to enjoy it by exploring in and on our OHVs. The expansion area is a park that will largely be open space with access roads and trails to explore the area. The expansion area will provide habitat for flora and fauna.

This appears to be another attempt of many by several local landowners to do what they think is the most profitable for them. Previous attempts to close down this OHV park include a 2012 Waterways challenge, four (4) lawsuits in 2016 challenging the adoption of the Carnegie General Plan and the the OHV Reauthorization of 2017 SB 249. The leader of this campaign operates a 9000 acre cattle ranching and elk hunting operation on the adjacent land, which is devastating for the environment.

Our park creates habitat, not destroys it, and the supporters of this legislation are creating a false narrative to discount the nature preserve this park is. Please review your support of this legislation.

Sincerely

Butch

Cal 4 Wheel says on ThumperTalk:

We need letters/faxes showing your support for the Carnegie SVRA Alameda/Tesla Expansion Plan and OHV recreation and your OPPOSITION to Senate Bill 1316

Senate Bill Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area: Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area Legislation- The bill has been introduced by Senator Steve Glazer (D) of the 7th district. (Antioch, Brentwood, Walnut Creek and Pleasanton). This bill would authorize the department to dispose of the portion of the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area known as the “Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area” to permanently preserve that land for conservation purposes, as specified, if the department determines that disposing of the land is in the public interest.

The bill would authorize the Director of General Services to transfer the land to a local agency for less than fair market value if the local agency agrees to use the land as a park or for another open-space purpose and would require the property interest to revert from the local agency to the state if the land is used for a different purpose during the 25 years after the transfer date. The bill would require any revenue from the disposition of the land to be deposited in the fund for the purchase of land for off-highway vehicle recreation by the department.

Senate Bill 1316 would prevent the OHV community a long-awaited opportunity for increased motorized recreational opportunities on the Alameda-Tesla acquisition property which was purchased with 100% funding from the Off-Highway Vehicle Trust Fund in 1998 to expand the Carnegie State Vehicle Recreation Area (SVRA).

Senate Bill 1316 also ignores the fact that a majority of the opposition comes from local land owners, many of whom previously agreed to the Carnegie SVRA expansion and Alameda-Tesla property acquisition, but now look to circumvent the current public process with the passage of this bill.

Senate Bill 1316 next goes to the Assembly Natural Resource committee and these are the committee members who need to hear from you:

I see this as a land grab by the rich ranchers who surround the park and want the land. Total

The Stste poured mahout bux into the expansion and the politicians that are supporting this are a big part of the problem with politics today.

Pay me for my support.

It's maddening how influential these large environmental organizations have become, and the spineless politicians who cater to their demands.

The land has been destroyed by decades of ranching, mining, it's even located next to a superfund toxic clean up site.

And now politicians have the nerve to declare it a significant environmental gem for the public to enjoy? A place of spiritual significance?

Don't they realize that SVRA management will ensure it remains an open space for the public to enjoy? That the SVRA plan guarantees responsible environmental stewardship and retains the visual integrity of the region? What good is having public lands if they are closed off for the public to enjoy?

Maddening.

I think it is individuals... in this case, Ceeleste Garamendi, and she is able to rally a group of organizations to do her bidding. And they have a membership that is dedicated to stopping motorcycles, not riding them.

The content in your post would be great to send to your State Senator and Assemblymember. And the Governor.

Great points.

Thanks Butch, completely agreed, I pester state and federal politicians on a weekly basis for most OHV issues. This one hits close to home.

My club (MCMA) also has a strong politically active wing regarding public lands access.

I agree that Garamendi is leveraging her inside connections and is driving most of the opposition. The sad part is that her motivation is not aligned with the groups she's pulling in. I don't believe it's about the environment or some sort of 'spiritual significance', rather it's about protecting her revenue from the property and more importantly her own property value.

It reeks of what's happening at Laguna Seca: Why build a house next to a race track and then demand to shut it down?
