American Sand Association – News

Back in September of 2018, the American Sand Association, along with our friends at EcoLogic Partners, Inc., filed a complaint with the CA Public Utilities Commission to express our concerns regarding the lack of safe railroad crossings in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area.  A formal committee was established as a direct result of our complaint to work on the railroad crossing issue. Now is the time for the public to provide their input on the most feasible crossing alternative. Virtual public meetings will be held on October 21 and October 24 so we can hear from you!  Also, a website has been set up at http://www.imperialctc.org/sr-78-glamis-crossing and an online input portal will be available between October 8 and November 6. Please see the flyer below for more details. Ecologic Partners, Inc. is a consortium of off-highway vehicle organizations that work to protect and expand meaningful recreation opportunities on public and private land. Partners include Off Road Business Association (ORBA) www.offroadbusiness.com , District 37 Competition American Motorcyclist Association www.amadistrict37.org and the American Sand Association (ASA) asasand.org.
