Today Cal4Wheel met with California State Parks Director Lisa Mangat and Deputy Director Maria Mowery. We wish to thank them for the opportunity to meet and listen to issues of concern to Cal4Wheel members.
Cal4Wheel provided a briefing paper outlining our points of concern that was used as the basis of the discussion. Cal4 is calling for a permanent Deputy Director and a full complement of administration and staff to manage the nationally recognized OHMVR Program.
The discussion focused on the importance of the OHMVR Grants and Cooperative Agreements component. Within that framework, while the 9 State Vehicle Recreation Areas are an important part, the partnership with federal partners is the main beneficiary of the OHMVR Grants program.
