Summary of the amendment:
The Amendment establishes minimum development standards for OHV land uses by identifying the required planning approvals for residential OHV activity on parcels up to 10 acres, non-commercial and commercial uses on parcels 10 acres or greater, and minor outdoor events. The development and standards regulate: 1) impacts to the surrounding community and biological resources, 2) impacts to sensitive view sheds, 3) minimum parcel size, 4) setbacks from residences, 5) maximum number of vehicles, 6) hours of operation, 7) minimization of noise impacts, 8.) dust suppression, 9) compliance with grading requirements pursuant to Ordinance 457, 10) requisite compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, 11) fuel storage, 12) site plan requirements, 13) permit duration, and 14) requisite public hearing and notice.

Setbacks. The outer dimensions of the off highway riding area shall be two hundred fifty (250) feet from any residence other than that of the operator, and one hundred (100) feet from the property line or right-of-way line.

Maximum Number A maximum of two (2) off highway vehicles will be allowed to be in operation on a parcel at any one time
Dust. On parcels upon which off highway vehicle riding occurs, a plan for dust suppression and control shall be submitted along with any application for the off highway vehicle use described in this article.

So what can you do? Spread the word to others and if you're a resident of Riverside County take 10 minutes to write your Riverside County Supervisor. Even if you're not a resident of Riverside County, but ride in it, I urge you to take 10 minutes and write the Riverside County Board of Supervisor's informing them how this amendment (#4.16 on the October 20th, 2004 agenda) affects you and could potentially effect the OHV community and businesses that not only supply OHV parts & equipment, but even the places where you gas and ice up while riding in the county.

So am I reading this correctly, that if I have 5 acres and want to drive my "OHV" (which doesn't appear to be specifically defined in their documents) from my house to the barn or shop, I can be cited by code enforcement for not having a dust suppression plan, conditional use permit, hours of operation, etc? Great plan. no
