2004 United Land Use Conference

The 2004 United Land Use Conference (ULUC), sponsored by the United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA), will be held at the Harrisburg Holiday Inn Hotel and Conference Center in Hershey, PA. on July 7. The hotel is located at the intersection of I-83 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The featured conference presentation will be from the U.S. Forest Service National OHV Policy Team. Representatives from the OHV Policy Team will provide a briefing on the new proposed rules that will apply to National Forest System lands to address management issues related to motor vehicle use.

The proposed rule change will integrate motor vehicle use with regulations for the Forest transportation system and provide a consistent national framework for designation of motor vehicles in the National Forest system. Another major element will require Forests to designate roads, trails, and areas available for motor vehicle use. This briefing will be one of many conducted by the policy team to inform the recreation public of pending rule changes.

The tentative conference agenda is:

8:00 - Introductions
8:30 - Roundtable: What concerns you about access to public lands?
9:30 - Lobbying - Presentation will cover "How to Lobby Your Elected Representative" and include letter writing and public speaking tips.
