  The Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Advisory Council exists to represent various user groups as decisions are made regarding OHV laws, rules, and programs. The council meets up to four times a year and makes recommendations or suggestions to maximize the effectiveness of the OHV program. Their input is sought for matters that concern the general OHV community.   The 12 OHV Advisory Council members are appointed by the Board of Parks and Recreation. Each member of this council is appointed to serve a four-year term and will represent a specific user group. Members must be an active OHV user, an advocate of the sport and have a passion for OHVs. The meetings are open to the public, and members of the public are welcome to attend and/or contact council members via email at OHVEDUCATION@UTAH.GOV.  You can also view OHV Council meeting agendas and meeting minutes.
