California Legislative Alert

AB 1086 (Bauer-Kahan) Off-highway vehicular recreation: Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area:  Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area
(As Amended September 6, 2019)

It’s time to ask the Governor Newsom to intervene in this gut-and-amend process and proceed to request his Department of Parks and Recreations to make recommendations toward a resolution of this issue.  This is not a win or lose proposition, but rather it’s pursuing a resolution that would make ALL parties whole.  Disenfranchising stakeholders by taking away recreation areas in this end run and tying this matter up in the courts is not the way to go!

The Governor’s Department of Finance got this right.  Their analysis of SB 767 (Glazer), the basis of this current bill, opposes the bill because:

  • It may result in a significant loss to the state through the sale of property at less than fair market value
  • It is not consistent with the approved plan for this Recreation Area as developed by State Parks
  • Parks received ongoing resources beginning with the Budget Act of 2018 to implement environmental standards in OHV recreation areas and minimize the environmental impact of off-highway recreation.

Please contact Governor Newsom NOW and urge his intervention by requesting State Parks to develop a plan to resolve this issue:
