Local leaders in Utah tourist hub call on government to reverse decision allowing ORVS on NP roads

Elected leaders in southern Utah’s Grand County passed a resolution Tuesday imploring the National Park Service to reconsider its recent directive to Utah park managers to accommodate “street legal” off-road vehicles on park roads.

Allowing ORVs in parks would have severe negative impacts on visitors’ experience and “is incompatible with resource and wildlife protection,” according to the resolution signed Tuesday by Grand County Council Chairman Evan Clapper, Moab Mayor Emily Niehaus and Castle Valley Mayor Jazmine Duncan.
