State recreation officials announced today that the Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) Trails Advisory Board has released a draft plan for comprehensive management of ORV use in Michigan, and that the public is invited to review and comment on the plan. The plan provides strategic direction for the management of ORV use on public lands administered by the Department of Natural Resources.
Public review and comment are integral parts of the planning process, said DNR Director Rebecca Humphries. These public comments will be incorporated into the final plan.
The draft plan provides a legislative and planning history of Michigans ORV program and provides recommendations to guide future management. It integrates ORV management with the DNRs core mission to conserve, protect and provide for public use and enjoyment of Michigans natural resources, for current and future generations.
Copies of the draft Michigan ORV Plan are available on the DNRs Web site at http://www.michigan.gov/....html[/size][/black][size 4] .
A limited number of hard copies are available by contacting Diana Cosper by phone at 517-335-3284 or via email at email@example.com .
