Waldheim Appointed to OHV Commission

Ed Waldheim, of Glendale, California, has been appointed to California 's Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Commission. Waldheim served a previous term as a commissioner and is president of Friends of Jawbone Canyon, Inc., and the California Off Road Vehicle Association (CORVA), as well as being active in a number of other groups. Waldheim was recognized for nine years of volunteer service in the BLM's Ridgecrest Field Office promoting responsible OHV use on the public lands in Southern California .

          Serving with Waldheim are: Judith Anderson, Montrose, Robert F. Chavez, Encino, Michael F. Prizmich, Ione, Paul J. Spitler, Davis, Harold Thomas, Sacramento, and John Brissenden, Hope Valley .

          The OHV Recreation Commission was created by the California Legislature in 1982 to allow public input and provide policy guidance for the OHV program. The Commission's duties include: allocating funds for OHV capital outlay expenditures and OHV grants and cooperative agreements; certifying environmental impact reports; and considering adverse impacts on property in the vicinity of State Vehicle Recreation Areas, and recommending measures to the Division to reduce those impacts.

          Seven Commissioners are appointed to staggered, four-year terms. The Governor appoints three of the members, and the Senate Rules Committee and the Speaker of the Assembly each appoint two. The Commission membership is required to represent a broad range of disciplines relevant to off-highway recreation -- OHV recreation enthusiasts, nonmotorized recreation interests, biologists, rural landowners, law enforcement, soil scientists, and environmental interests.
