McGrath Teams Up with ORBA to Respond to Proposed OHV Ordinance - News - Dirt Rider Magazine

McGrath and ORBA Respond to Riverside OHV OrdinanceIn an effort to educate Riverside county officials on how a reasonable OHV ordinance can be written, ORBA and The AMA have teamed up to cultivate a better working environment among the Riverside County Board of Supervisors and planning officials and the local OHV community. The goal of this collaboration is to ensure both off-roaders and their neighbors can live together without infringing on private property owners' rights.

The off-road industry and user community is very aware of the problems excessive sound creates with neighbors and the surrounding properties. We believe the key to solving this problem is to moderate the sound levels made by the OHV's and to establish reasonable hours of operation. The ordinance as written today is excessive and possibly discriminatory, as it includes special rules ONLY for people who choose to recreate on OHV's.

Working in conjunction with all of the parties involved we hope to help Riverside County Planning officials adopt an ordinance that the off-road community and the County can point to as well written and fair to all parties involved.

ORBA is a Santee, California-based trade association comprised of off-road related businesses united to promote common goals that support the prosperity and growth of the off-road industry.
