The deadline “for the public to provide comments on the proposed recreation fees at four newly established Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) permit zones and one existing OHV permit zone within the Mesa and Cave Creek Ranger Districts” is Nov. 1st. According to Tonto National Forest officials, “The proposal requires fees at the existing Bulldog Canyon OHV permit zone, the Rolls, St. Clair, Desert Vista, and Lower Sycamore, all within Maricopa County. OHV permits will be sold through Recreation.gov and administered by the Tonto National Forest. Yearly, monthly and daily permit options are proposed.” Additionally, “Proposed OHV permit zone fees are $100 per year, $50 per month and $10 per day. An OHV permit is valid for all five OHV permit zones. Permit holders receive gate codes for accessing the OHV permit zones at time of purchase. Each individual vehicle operator 16 and older will be required to carry a valid OHV permit and government issued ID, such as a Driver’s License while recreating in an OHV permit zone.”
