How did the meeting go Enrique?
I read in the original draft plans the following:
2.7.5 FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES
As described previously, most visitors come to Carnegie SVRA to ride off-highway motorcycles; however, there have been longstanding
desires for an SVRA that would serve users of other OHV types. State Parks has tried to accommodate 4WD recreation with development
of the 4x4 challenge area. Most of the original Carnegie SVRA is too steep for 4WD vehicles and ATVs. The expansion area provides
an opportunity to provide recreation opportunities for users of other types of OHVs like 4WD vehicles...
The expansion area also provides an opportunity for State Parks to educate visitors about the natural and cultural resources.
As I am reading this, most go to Carnegie SVRA to ride off-hwy motorcycles because that's what place is setup for and allows
on its trails; And yes, I would visit the park if an expansion accommodates 4WD vehicles. Be a great place for SF Bay Area residents
to be less than 1 hr to OHV 4WD recreational area, and perhaps venue for vendors e.g. ARB and local clubs e.g. NCLR, and dealerships e.g. Land Rover in
Livermore to sponsor 4WD driving skills courses and education on tread lightly yet enjoying the outdoors... We have Hollister (thank
goodness) but it's 2 1/2 hours away for folks like myself who lives in Contra Costa/Alameda County.
