The Comox Valley ATV Club has signed a landmark land use agreement with Mosaic Forest Management, allowing recreational use on Mosaic’s privately managed forest lands.
The Comox Valley club is one of five island-wide to sign the deal.
Other clubs include the Alberni Valley Hillclimbers, Sooke ATV Club, Mid-Island ATV Club and Cowichan ATV Club.
Each club that has signed the agreement has a specific area of the island that its clubs will manage access to on behalf of its members. Riders must receive an access permit from the club which will include compliance with the safety and environmental standards and insurance requirements of the Mosaic agreement.
“ATVBC is proud of the hard work and dedication of our members to see this agreement through many steps, setbacks and challenges to get to where it is today,” said ATVBC President Chris D’ Silva. “This is a great example of industry and user groups working together to find solutions that meet everyone’s needs and continue to allow equitable access to our beautiful lands for recreational purposes.
The Registration contacted the Comox Valley ATV Club for comment regarding the impact this agreement will have on local trail access.
