The preliminary application is available on the OHMVR Division’s Website at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov for review and comment from Tuesday March 7, 2017 to April 3, 2017. The division’s website provides detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary application submitting comments. Applicant names are found in the General Application Requirements under item 3.
The OLGA (Online Grants Application) database allows the public to read preliminary applications in a centralized location and the Grants and Cooperative program allows for a thirty-day public review and comment period.

The Friends of Jawbone are inviting members of the public to join them for a collaborative meeting to discuss illegal off-highway vehicle travel through the Cantil Area. The meeting will be held on April 23, 2016, from 1-3 p.m., at the Jawbone Station Visitor Center.
In Spring of 2015, the Friends of Jawbone were awarded a grant from Kern County OHV funds to work with the citizens of Cantil to sign and repair damage on private property. Since then, route planning and signing has taken place. We want to encourage the citizens of Cantil to come and hear what work has been done using the grant as well as provide input on possible future projects to help deal with this pressing issue.
Meeting will be held on April 23, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Jawbone Station Visitors Center off Highway 14.
