TMTC Press Release

Project Coordinator, TXTEAMM


8/10/06 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Texas Motorized Trails Coalition (TMTC) is proud to announce the recent
acquisition of a 3,329 acre parcel of land in Crockett County, near the town
of Ozona, Texas. The TMTC is planning to develop this land into a public
recreational park open to both motorized and non-motorized users.
The TMTC had been searching for a new park property for over three years.
"It's been a long time in coming", said Carol L. Smith , land acquisitions
chairperson, "but we have completed the initial task of acquisition and look
forward to developing this land into another premier offroading destination
park for the entire State of Texas."
The TMTC already owns an 1800 acre park near Longview, which is currently
almost fully developed. The Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area (BMRA) has
over 120 miles of trail system, which is marked and mapped, as well as,
rated as for degree of difficulty. The BMRA also has restroom and shower
facilities, RV and primitive camping, a pavilion, an air station, food
service and park managers that live on site.
The TMTC works closely with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD),
the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Texas Historical Commission to
ensure that all environmental, biological and cultural resources located on
the property are identified and protected.
The TMTC is a non-profit, all volunteer, membership based organization that
was recognized in March of 2006 as the "State Association of the Year" by
the National Off Highway Vehicle Conservation Council. The TMTC also works
closely with the American Motorcyclist Association, United Four Wheel Drive,
SW Four Wheel Drive, Tread Lightly! and the ATV Safety Institute.
"The acquisition of this new park property proves that we are working
diligently to fulfill our mission - in the operation of family-oriented
recreational parks within the state of Texas." said Gary Hazel, president of
the TMTC, " We would especially like to recognize the assistance and support
of the TPWD in this land acquisition and we look forward to continuing our
excellent working relationship with them."
Both of the TMTC's property acquisitions were funded, in large part, by the
Recreational Trails Fund (RTF), a federal, pass through, gas tax rebate
program administrated by the TPWD. TPWD has also recently instituted an Off
Highway Vehicle (OHV) Sticker Program required for use by OHV's who utilize
public lands or land purchased with grant programs, both federal or state.
Both of these programs are a substantial step forward in the creation of
public lands dedicated to OHV use in the State of Texas and the TPWD/ TMTC
land acquisitions are prime examples of how the programs can be utilized.

"In Unity there is Strength"

That's exciting news!! It's good to have choices on wheeling destinations, I hope the sport grows enough to support all the places popping up.
