S.B. 767, Giving away Carnegie, Again, Again - THE BILL WILL RISE!!!!

Glazier is going to reintroduce the legislation; we have a new Governor. Garamendi is behind this. She has lots of time, money and hate for OHV.

thanks!
the "LITIGATION" section is the three lawsuits Celeste brought against State Parks for adopting the new General Plan which included developing the 3000 acre expansion area. That woud be like half buffer zone for nature and camping and some riding trails.

Expelitive reserved.

We all need to talk to our representatives. Do you know who your assemblymember is? Here http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov

This is good!
In my opinion...
He (or his staff) will listen to you and your fellow constituents, and if he thinks you could have more influence on his re-election than Celeste‘s money it may influence his behavior.

The expansion area is our State Park, to be developed largely as a preserve, and he is advocating giving it to some privately held “non-profit”.

Or something like that. Details to follow as they develop.

If Glazer is your man you are the pipeline to him.. and one of the most important voices to be heard.

Anyone can write to him. Perhaps we should get a letter campaign going??

I think we need to get some balanced views in this papper.
This is not:
This newspaper has made no secret of its wish to preserve the 3,100-acre Tesla site east of Livermore in its present unspoiled state, which means not allowing the State Parks Department’s aggressive off-road enthusiasts to develop it for motorcycle and off-road recreation. Thus, we were disappointed to learn that SB 1316 failed to advance and is now dead for this legislative session. SB 1316 would have allowed the Parks Department to sell Tesla to local agencies that would have been far more inclined to protect the natural, historical and cultural treasures of the beautiful site.

State Sen. Steve Glazer is to be commended for sponsoring SB 1316, and we trust he will continue his efforts in the coming year. In the meantime, a citizens' group is continuing its lawsuit challenging the Parks Department’s off-road development plans. The group, Friends of Tesla Park, serves as a loose umbrella for the many individual organizations that want to protect Tesla and its wildlife from the industrial scale destruction that has already happened at the Carnegie site next door—destruction that includes torn landscape, obnoxious noise and spilled oil, not to mention the constant exhaust emissions and fine metal particles often carried by oil leaks from high-revving motors. We wish Friends of Tesla Park good luck, and we hope readers will contribute to its cause. Learn more about the efforts of Friends of Tesla Park at www.teslapark.org.

More un independent news:
http://www.independentnews.com/news/....html?mode=jqm

The Altamont Open Space Advisory Committee has scheduled a retreat. The group will work with a consultant to go through data that will be used to establish the criteria to highlight properties where good conservation opportunities exist.

The Committee also heard an update on pending legislation regarding the off-road vehicle park proposed for the Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area .

The retreat will be held Feb. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. either at Dublin City Hall or The Heritage House on the Alameda County Fairgrounds. It will be open to the public.

Funds for acquisition of open space lands in eastern Alameda County are available as part of a legal settlement in connection with expansion of the Altamont Landfill. The Committee, composed of representatives from Alameda County, the City of Livermore, the City of Pleasanton, and the Sierra Club, decides which properties receive funding.

According to the settlement, biological diversity and habitat are the top focus for areas to be acquired, followed by scenic views and recreation.

Van Butsic, consultant from U.C. Berkeley, asked to be able to contact committee members to narrow down the criteria.

Shawn Wilson, Chief of Staff for Supervisor Scott Haggerty, proposed holding a retreat as a way of providing the information requested by the consultant. At the end of the retreat, an ad hoc committee will be established to continue narrowing the list of priorities.

OFF-ROAD LAND

The Committee also heard an update on pending legislation that would allow the state to sell the portion of the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area known as the Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area in order to permanently preserve that land for conservation purpose.

Celeste Garamendi from Friends of Tesla Park told the committee that State Senator Steve Glazer is in the process of drafting a bill similar to the one that failed last year.

It is expected to be introduced next week or the following week. The deadline to introduce legislation is Feb. 22.


The state plans to add 3,100 acres in the Tesla area to the 1575 acre Carnegie Off-Road Vehicle Park. Both sites are owned by the State. Both the General Plan and Environmental Impact Report for Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area have been approved.

Garamendi said the bill would authorize the California Department of Parks and Recreation to make a determination that selling the land would be in the public interest, in conjunction with a public hearing and consultation with stakeholders.

She said she would be asking for a letter of support from the Committee for the legislation.

Shawn Wilson asked the committee also to authorize a generic letter. The letter would be a general statement of support based on an understanding of what the legislation contains, as well as the fact there is money available to purchase the property.

He said he has been asked for information by both the new Governor Gavin Newsom and new Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan. He said there will be a meeting with the governor during which the letter would be presented.

Nancy Rodrigue from Friends of Tesla Park issued the following statement regarding the legislation, “We are very grateful for Senator Glazer's and Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan's commitment to preserve Tesla Park. With our state level representatives, Alameda County and the City of Livermore, and so many more local agencies, organizations and officials, we believe we will succeed this year to pass this legislation and have it signed into law. Tesla's extraordinary biological, cultural and scenic resources must be forever protected.”

The plan to expand off-road use has been controversial. Environmentalists oppose building trails for motorized vehicles into an expansion area that has habitat for rare species, including the California red-legged frog, sacred cultural sites for Native Americans, scenic hillsides, and remnants of a coal mining area.

Off-road vehicle advocates say the area expands recreation opportunities for the growing number of users of dirt-bikes, All Terrain Vehicles and other motorized vehicles meant for use on trails.

LITIGATION

In an interview after the meeting, Garamendi provided an update on ongoing litigation.

A first action, an ultra-vires challenge, focused on the authority of the Off-Road Vehicle Commission to certify an environmental impact report and approve a general plan. A hearing is scheduled for March 15 in Sacramento Superior Court

Garamendi said that if they lose the challenge, the next step would be to target the CEQA process on the grounds that it was not properly followed. If they win the ultra-vires, the item would be returned to the Off-Road Commission for correction.

Some recent attacks on our riding areas

a few assaults I am aware of:
...The Fisherman’s Lawsuit of 2009
...(4) lawsuits filed by GARAMENDI with her compatriots challenging the latest General Plan approved in 2016; “Friends of Tesla Park”, SPRAWLDEF”,
Alameda County Parks and the Connolly Ranch
...SB 249, meant to eviscerate the OHVMR Division of State Parks
...AB 1316, meant to force the State to give away two thirds of the park territory to “SPRAWDEF” or some other entity which she has influence
...Closure of the SRI creek crossing under the guise that the Connolly Ranch will lose access to their property because of physical destruction of the easement
...The current legislation, SB767, to reintroduce the content of AB1316

For some background:
For Immediate Release: December 15, 2009
Contact: Kirsten Stade (202) 265-7337

OFF-ROADING ENDS UNTIL CALIFORNIA PARK CLEANS UP ITS ACT — Clean Water Victory at Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area

Oakland, CA — A California Superior Court has ordered the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreational (OHMVR) Division of the California Department of Parks and Recreation (Department) to shut down all off-road motor vehicle activity at the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreational Area (Carnegie SVRA) until they file a report of waste discharge (RWD) and obtain a permit for pollutant discharges from the heavily used off-road park. The park discharges prodigious quantities of heavy metals and sediment into Corral Hollow Creek near Tracy, California.

The California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA) and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) filed the lawsuit on September 17, alleging that the off-road park had failed to request and obtain the legally required permit for pollutant discharges from Carnegie's numerous off-road trails. Following a December 4th hearing, Judge Roesch of the Alameda Superior Court ordered the Department to “submit a report of waste discharge for water pollution associated with the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area” and to “suspend all off-road highway motor vehicle activity at Carnegie SVRA, including vehicles driving in Corral Hollow Creek” until they “have submitted an RWD and received waste discharge requirements or received a waiver of such WDRs from the Regional Board.”

“State-run off-road parks should be a model for promoting responsible off-roading,” said California PEER Director Karen Schambach. “Instead, they've been polluting water, allowing unchecked erosion, and violating both the law and their own regulations.”

CSPA's Executive Director Bill Jennings said, “Hopefully, the court's order will prompt the Carnegie SVRA to obtain required permits and begin instituting necessary measures to reduce and eliminate the massive discharge of pollutants into Corral Hollow Creek, as well as prohibiting the extensive motor vehicle activity in the creek itself.”

Two claims remain in the lawsuit. The lawsuit also alleges that the Department is violating State water quality objectives in Corral Hollow Creek and has failed to comply with its own regulations requiring monitoring of soil loss and damage to wildlife habitat. The park is habitat to a number of species protected under state and federal endangered species acts.

Not yet.
We talk soon.
When it hits the state congress floor we should go crazy.

Edit: I beg for others to take a personal interest in this.
