The Off-Highway Vehicle Advisory Group (OHVAG) is reviewing the criteria for "high priortiy" project. A new application form and instructions will be posted soon. New project applications will be due around the end of the year for review by OHVAG at their Jan/Feb 2012 meeting.
The Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Fund (Fund) OHV legislation (A.R.S. §28-1176) ( 66 KB PDF) has been in existence since 1991. The Arizona Legislature appropriated .55% of state’s annual vehicle gas tax revenue to support the Fund. In 2009 new OHV legislation was enacted to provide more regulation of OHV usage and additional funds to support law enforcement and facility development. All vehicles weighing less than 1800 pounds and designed primarily for travel over unimproved terrain are required to display an indicia (sticker) distributed through the Department of Motor Vehicles. The $25 cost of the sticker is added to the OHV Recreation Fund. State Parks receives 60% of the money in the Fund and the State Parks Board is required to examine applications for eligible projects and determine the amount of funding, if any, for each project.
The “Sticker Fund Project Selection Program” (Program) is designed to solicit, review, and select projects that meet legislative requirements and priorities established in the most recent OHV recreation plan. State Parks develops the OHV recreation plan every five years with input from land managing agency staff, OHV user organizations, individual OHV users, and the general public. The 2010 State Trails Plan can be found on the State Parks website:
