Arizona State Parks Board appoints the 7-member, volunteer Off-Highway Advisory Group (OHVAG). OHVAG advises the State Parks Board and staff on the planning, development, funding, maintenance, and promotion on off-highway recreation in Arizona. OHVAG also advises on grants made with Federal Recreational Trails Program funds, and created the OHV Ambassadors, a peer program providing information and education at OHV recreation sites. OHVAG members represent a variety of off-highway recreation interests and geographical regions within Arizona. Each individual is appointed to a three-year term. OHVAG members are expected to be active participants and commit time between quarterly meetings to help accomplish the goals of OHVAG.
OHVAG members derive from a mix of motorized recreationalists, sportsmen, and the general public. The OHV Program is looking for candidates to join the team for terms beginning January 1, 2016. The deadline for submitting an application is 5:00PM, Tuesday, September 1 ,2015. Contact Brianne Fisher at 602-542-6968 or advisorycommittee(at)azstateparks.gov to discuss how you can become involved with OHVAG now, even before we interview candidates in 2015.
The OHVAG serves in an advisory capacity to the Arizona State Parks Board. OHVAG is a body of dedicated citizen volunteers who assure public involvement in the implementation of the Arizona State Parks administered portion of the Arizona Off Highway Vehicle Program. The seven-member group is appointed by the State Parks Board. This advisory group is instrumental in the development and implementation of the OHV Recreation Plan. The mission of OHVAG is to develop and enhance statewide off-highway vehicle opportunities, and to develop educational programs that promote resource protection, social responsibility, and interagency cooperation.
The OHVAG meeting dates are scheduled to occur roughly one month prior to ASP Board meetings involving the identified Critical Action Items. OHVAG and ASP Staff may identify the need for additional meetings as required. Please contact Brianne Fisher at (602) 542-6968 or bfisher(at)azstateparks.gov with any concerns about Meeting Dates.
Advisory committee meetings will be held at Arizona Game and Fish Deparment 5000 W. Carefree Highway, Phoenix, AZ 85086. Unless agenda notice states otherwise.
