SB767 passed with a vote of 6-2 in the Natural Resources and Water Committee. Next hearing will be in the Committee on Government Organizations. One of the duties of that committee relates to disposing of excess state government property. The Carnegie expansion property does not meet the standards for disposal.

CORVA Letter for all to use

https://corva.org/Corva-Alerts

March 15, 2019

The Honorable Steve Glazer
California State Senate​​​Position: Oppose
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 05829​​​Location: Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee

Re: SB 767 (Glazer) Off-highway vehicular recreation: Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area: Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area. (As Introduced February 22, 2019)

Dear Senator Glazer:

The Off Road Vehicle Legislative Coalition is comprised of several statewide or regional organizations of OHV enthusiasts.

Our coalition has reviewed SB 767 and strongly opposes this bill that would deny opportunities for local Bay Area residents including the elderly and disabled, and motorized recreation enthusiasts. The land in question was purchased using funds from the Off Highway Vehicle Trust Fund, with agreement as to the future purpose of the land signed by adjacent landowners. Additionally, no other serious bidders entered into negotiations to purchase the land referred to in SB 767 as the Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area, at that time. Subsequent to the purchase of the land by the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division of State Parks, extensive work was begun to correct 20 years of previous neglect, including disregard of cultural and natural resources, and to bring the property up to the high environmental standards mandated by State Parks.

California’s environmental justice statute promotes the fair treatment of all peoples, regardless of economic advantage. State Parks takes adherence to these principles outlined in Government Code Section 65040.12 very seriously and therefore has proposed a plan for the Alameda -Tesla Expansion Area that enhances opportunities for all California residents. SB 767 ignores the inclusiveness outlined in the general plan for the expansion property that illustrates a multiple use park including trails of varying difficulty, remote camping access, picnic areas, and also includes significant environmental buffer zone designations. The proposed layout for the park showcases family opportunities and allows access for individuals with physical limitations.

SB 767 proposes the Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area should be under control of the privileged instead of the proven stewardship of State Parks. The transfer of the land from State Parks to some sort of public/private partnership would also serve to eliminate the security of state law insuring inclusiveness and access for all Californians.

State Parks is tasked with managing natural and cultural resources for all 280+ state parks in California. The Department has repeatedly demonstrated proficiency at this task. State Parks owns the parcel known as the Carnegie Expansion area. Logic and fiscal accountability point to State Parks being the appropriate and the best steward for this land

Two years ago, the legislature widely supported and passed SB 249, which created a series of environmental responsibilities including monitoring and review for all land overseen by State Parks and managed by the Off Highway Motorized Recreation Division. The environmental responsibilities in SB 249 go far beyond what any local county, city or non-profit is mandated or can afford to provide. For conservation reasons alone, the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area should be left in the control of State Parks and thereby benefit from the funding, manpower, knowledge and experience only the state can bring to this site.

SB 767 would set a dangerous precedent by encouraging local landowners who object to the location of any state park, preserve or beach to push legislation to privatize that specific location. As prices for real estate have increased in areas surrounding the Bay Area, adjacent landowners have realized they would profit more from the eventual sale of their holdings should they be successful in removing this existing state park. This action would support privatization of public land, and hurt many Californians looking forward to enjoying experiences the Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area will have to offer upon completion.

State parks should remain for the benefit of all Californians, not just a select few.

More good stuff:
This is key, and not brought up enough:
"The Alameda/Tesla Expansion won’t just be a park solely designed for registered off-highway vehicles. There will be back country trails accessible by normal street registered SUVs. There will be places to park and view natural and cultural resources far from the hustle and bustle of civilization in an unspoiled environment. In other words, valuable resources will be protected and kept in pristine condition."

From the Tweety text.

Ben Allen and Steve Glazer seem to be heavily influenced by Garamendi money.

I am going to sent this:

Please consider these real facts and not just those presented by those promoting this bill.

As a preserve for nature, the Expansion Area will be developed carefully and responsibly with regard to environmental and cultural resources. The requirements the the State Parks must uphold are fare more stringent than if management of the area was handed over to any other organization.

The Expansion Area is planned as a multi use area, with half dedicated as a buffer zone, ie, preserve, for wildlife. The balance will be developed with habitat preservation in mind. There will be opportunities for stakeholder input as that development progresses.

Without visiting the subject property, and evaluating all the issues, it is irresponsible for our organization to endorse the agenda of the local wealth landowners.

The park is for the citizens and taxpayers of California to enjoy, not set aside to benefit some influential few.

The California State Parks Off Highway Motorized Vehicular Division is dedicated to providing a balance of access for the public and preservation. They are doing this well, and shutting down managed OHV parks as the population and demand increases will only put excess pressure on other existing areas. This does not even address the alternative to uses illegal areas as legal areas are no longer available.

You must visit the parks to intelligently support or oppose any legislation in regards to expansion or closure. The OHV parks are not areas decimated by dirtbike activity as presented by to proponents of this bill. They are managed quite differently that 20 years ago when there was less pressure on the environment.

or something. Feel free to use any of this text you guys want.

I actually submitted this: The State Parks can be entrusted to preserve this land. Let them do their job. It is public land and should not be entrusted to a private entity.
