Forest officials Thursday released a draft plan that would ban any cross-country travel by such machines, confining them to designated roads and trails to limit their environmental impact. Like all national forests, Mt. Hood is creating a "travel management plan" to comply with a 2005 rule change by the U.S. Forest Service. In the past, all areas in most forests, including Mt. Hood, were open to off-highway vehicles -- a category that includes motorcycles and Jeeps -- unless they were marked off-limits. Under the new rules, all areas are presumed off-limits unless specifically designated for off-highway vehicles. The Mt. Hood forest has about 3,383 miles of roads in different states of repair, and the forest's two preferred plans released Thursday would limit off-road vehicles to 99 or 325 miles of roads and trails in select areas.

Space is a major issue for both the NPA and the hunters. The areas open to hunting are strictly limited. Parks and nature reserves are off-limits, and hunters are not allowed within 500 meters of a settlement or 100 meters of a lone house or cemetery. Some areas that are home to endangered species are also closed to hunting. Menahem sees the area restrictions as yet another attempt by the NPA to limit hunters. "They want to close hunting areas, to limit us," he said. "It's not enough that our country is so small... the small area we have is being further trimmed."
The Danish capital has preserved its old-world charm of cobbled streets and historic buildings, whilst becoming a distinctly modern city with trendy cafes and plenty of green spaces. The city is a good showcase of Denmark's sustainable approach, as it is the first in the world so far to put Agenda 21 into practice. Agenda 21 is a program launched at the 1992 UN conference in Rio to promote sustainable development globally and locally.
