California State Parks have chosen a preferred concept (out of the three presented at public workshop in June) and have scheduled a series of meetings to present it to the public. In addition, they have fashioned an interactive web-site where they will obtain public feedback before coming up with the preliminary draft general plan and EIR.
Don’t forget to put these dates on your calendar. You need to know about this new preferred concept if you care about off-road riding opportunities at Carnegie.
There are others who don’t ride and they are trying to take away our park. They are busy organizing and raising money for the time when they can attack the EIR in court. The battle is not over and it won’t be over until the new property is opened for OHV recreation.
On Tuesday, November 12th, 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Amador High School (1155 Santa Rita Road, Pleasanton) State Parks will present the new preferred concept at a series of work stations where the public can interact with the planning team. Make sure you get there by 8:00 to hear a brief presentation by the State.
According to State Parks: “The preferred concept was developed based on detailed resource and constraints information, and on stakeholder comments received on the three concept alternatives presented in June/July 2013.” The preferred concept won’t released to the public until November 12th.
You will get another chance to talk to members of the planning team at the Booth near MotoMart on Saturday, November 16th at 1:00p.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you are going to attend this meeting tell them at the front gate and your admission will be free.
All information presented at the workshop will be made available on the project website. Between November 13th and December 16th an interactive web activity will be available to allow public feedback on the preferred concept.
