ROV Noise Concerns Prompt New Restrictions in Moab, UT

On Oct. 20, the Grand County Commission and City of Moab held a joint meeting to vote on three joint resolutions affecting all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). The impetus for the meeting was the record number of public comments objecting to noise impacts from ATVs. There has also been a recent increase in business license applications in the City and County for sales, rentals, and licensing of ATVs and related guide services that serve non-residents. The rapid growth of ATV rentals and tours has resulted in a sharp increase in noise impacts to the residents of the City and County. “We need to reduce the volume by reducing the volume of the number of ATVs, of the recreational vehicles that are driving on our city streets,” said Emily Niehaus, Mayor of Moab.

ARRA Requests Partners Identify LWCF-Eligible OHV Projects

Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) is working with the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable (ORR) to build a comprehensive list of Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)-eligible recreation projects for funding through the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA). With the passage of GAOA this summer, the outdoor recreation community has an unprecedented opportunity to have its voice and priorities carried out through LWCF and the maintenance backlog.

2020 Tom Petri Annual Achievement Awards

On Oct. 22, the Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT) celebrated the virtual 2020 Tom Petri Annual Achievement Awards. The awards, honoring former U.S. Representative Tom Petri (WI) recognize outstanding use of Recreational Trails Program (RTP) funds. In past years, the CRT Awards ceremony is an in-person event in Washington, D.C. However, due to COVID-19, the awards were a virtual event this year.

States Continue to Increase Recreational Access

As states continue to reopen from COVID-19 restrictions, they are increasing recreational access to roads, trails, picnic areas, restrooms, and wilderness. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues to work with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and use a phased approach to increase access on a case-by-case basis.
