Help Needed for Our Neighbors at Clear Creek

Posted by on January 19, 2010 under Events. This post currently has 5 responses.

While we are all fighting for our 1500 acres at Carnegie, our neighbors to the South at Clear Creek are fighting for 70,000 acres. Once again the reason for closing this historic riding, recreation and exploring area is the environmental card. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has closed the area because of asbestos on the property and riders, leadership organizations, 4-WD clubs and gem hunters are fighting back. I will attend the latest hearing (sorry for the last minute update) in Santa Clara. I will speak for the Carnegie regulars and let the folks there know of our support. I’ll wear a bright red USMC ball cap – it would be great if we can spot each other and sit together.

Santa Clara Convention Center – 5001 Great America Parkway – Santa Clara 95054

Times – 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

Carnegie Off-Road Enthusiasts Meeting

Posted by on January 11, 2010 under Events. This post currently has no responses.

January 6, 2010, CORE (Carnegie Off-Road Enthusiasts) held a meeting of parties interested in taking a stance against the closure of Carnegie SVRA. The meeting was generously sponsored and hosted at Tri-Valley Moto BMW, Triumph and KTM dealership in Livermore, CA. Some of the items discussed were:

  • legal options by presenting citizens petition to the judges presiding over the case
  • performing independent environmental testing to determine if toxins found are consistent with motor vehicle discharge
  • contacting our elected officials with outrage at this terrible decision
  • expanding and utilizing social networks to build this grass-roots effort

Members of the group attending expressed outrage at this decision and offered accounts of how this decision will affect them personally in large and small ways. Specific activities and efforts are underway to prevent or reverse the appeals court decision expected on Monday January 11, 2010.

CORE Meeting #1

Thanks once again for the overwhelming support here on from people near and far. Please check in here often for any developments.
