Subject: ORV Stakeholder Workgroup Update

Dear ORV Stakeholder -
I am writing to thank you for your time, attention and thoughtful input
toward the ORV process thus far; and seek your interest in serving the
process going forward. As promised, the Department is now preparing to
finalize the named members for the ORV Stakeholder Workgroup. This group
will guide us in determining possible locations for new ORV trails in MD. As
mentioned in our last message, we intend to meet quarterly with a goal of
identifying at least one new trail system in the next twelve months. This
will require several on-site meetings in the field at locations worthy of
consideration. To see these sites in person we will also need to meet during
the day and generally on weekdays to avoid conflicts with
landowners/managers-- so please consider those facts before submitting your
name as a candidate to the group.

I will lead the ORV Stakeholder Workgroup with other DNR team-members
supporting our efforts. Please reply with a short note expressing your
interest in being named to the workgroup and the name of the organization
and/or 'philosophy' represented by the group. We are generally looking for
individuals who represent organized groups/associations/clubs in and around
MD so please send one named representative (and perhaps one alternate) for
each group. This workgroup will include non-riders but our focus will be on
development of new ORV trail riding opportunities so please keep that in
mind as it will mean a majority of members will be trail riders (including
larger street-legal 4x4's, atvs, side-by-sides, dirt bikes -- dual-purpose
and otherwise; and snowmobiles).

On behalf of the Department, thank you for your time and please reply with
your note of interest by May 26, 2011 so we can compile the final membership
and circulate our selections shortly thereafter.

Thank you and enjoy the weekend!
