Exclamation Please sign petition to open Zero Emission OHV park in SJ

Hello all, I could use some help convincing San Jose to allow the opening of an all electric OHV motorcycle park along the bay in San Jose.

I need to show that there are plenty of people that would prefer this park to cricket or ball fields and ultimately a larger park over industrial development.

Please sign the linked petition. It doesn't matter if you're registered to vote.

Thanks in Advance!

Link to petition



California State Parks is interested in opening the world's first solar powered, zero emission recreational vehicle public park in San Jose, California.

Link to Park Summary

Phase one is a 40 acre demonstration park that proves that zero emission recreational vehicles are a viable alternative.

Phase two would environmentally restore the land and expand the park into hundreds of acres along San Fransisco Bay. If a park is not established the land could become industrial development.

The goals of the Zero Emission Park proposal are to promote electric vehicles and prove their viability for recreation, entice buyers to chose electric over gas powered vehicles, reduce travel trips to reduce emissions system wide and provide recreational and nature educational opportunities in an urban environment for families and all users.

California State Parks and a nonprofit foundation will be responsible for all environmental restoration, habitat and species stewardship, planning the park and building the trails, nature education center and kiosks.

Most of the land will remain open space. For the use of a fraction of the land for trails the park will provide all of the funding, staff and expertise to restore, maintain and provide stewardship for all of the land.

This would be a regionally attractive recreational destination and an excellent use of the land and fits in well with San Jose’s Green Vision Goals and high tech reputation.

Let San Jose know that you support stopping development and opening this innovative park in the heart of silicon valley.

Below is an email excerpt from State Parks outlining their interest in this proposal.

All,

I would like to restate my desire to get this project moving forward. The concept of urban parks was considered extremely important by the Parks Forward Commission’s report.

That report is driving the Transformation Team towards the future of California State Parks and your proposed OHV park would mark off a number of important boxes on the list.

First, partnerships are a priority and the State through the OHMVR Division of State Parks would partner with a non-profit and local government to develop and manage the facility.

Secondly, the urban parks mandate would be covered with the proposed location.

Thirdly, the environmental mandates would be stricter than a typical State Park due to the requirements of the OHV laws in California.

And lastly, the OHMVR Division is moving towards a future plan with Electric/Low Emission OHVs.

I will make myself available to meet with you and any local city officials as we move forward.

Sincerely,

State Parks OHMVR Commissioner

Shameless bump..

Thanks to the few that signed. I hope it's not a pain to do.

I'm this close >< to getting an official California State motorcycle park in the heart of Silicon Valley but San Jose thinks people would rather have ball fields. Do you?
