Inyo Adventure Trails System gets the Green Light
After nearly 11 hours of testimony and public comment Thursday, the Inyo Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 approving the Eastern Sierra ATV Adventure Trails System Project. The primary goal of the project is to link off highway vehicle users with goods and services located in Inyo County communities. Inyo County Administrative Officer Kevin Carunchio indicates that the action taken by the board of Thursday gives the OK to a plan that was substantially reduced from the projects original plan
Thursdays public hearing began at 10am in the Independence legion hall and continued throughout the day, wrapping up just before 9pm. After receiving several reports and hearing from the public the board took formal action to move forward with the seven routes.
Routes include, Bishop #5, Brown’s Town to Poleta OHV area, Bishop #6, Pleasant Valley Campground to Horton Creek Campground, Bishop #7, Pleasant Valley Campground to Tungsten City, Bishop #9, Brown’s Town to Bir Road, Bishop #15, Britt’s Diesel to Poleta OHV Recreation Area, Independence #1, Independence Inn to Betty Jumbo Mine Road, and Lone Pine #1, Boulder Creek RV Park to N. Fork Lubken Canyon/BLM road.
Carunchio says that adding future routes would require a lengthy process
