Oregon Dunes Help!

Oregon State Parks and Douglas County are in the process of drafting the Umpqua Light House State Park Master Plan. Which if adopted would close off the north end of the dunes from a point approx. 1500 feet south of the light house.
This is because of noise complaints from a few local citizens

In the DRAFT of the master plan they state that
"Between 1987 and 2002 ATV riding increased 144.6% "and yet they want to close down more of our riding area, using money from the state ATV fund!

This would close the existing dune access and the "bunny slopes" (where the younger riders enjoy themselves) and make us ride on an enclosed speed regulated trail west towards the beach and then south to an access point at the second parking lot.(see map)
Doing this would put the younger and the inexperienced riders in a confined space with 2 wheelers, dune buggies , jeeps , and pickups creating a very hazardous situation.

If you wish to help, let your voice be heard.
Please include all viable information and any comments you may have such as name address e-mail and years riding in the area.
You can view the plan at OR St. Parks
