regulation example for restricted ATV access
Dear Planners,
I am seeking regulation examples to protect native plants to thrive during a river restoration process, particularly to prevent from ATV and off-road vehicle enthusiasts disturbing the plants on the bare flat earth after invasive plants will be cleared out with bulldozers.

This site is in Kearny, Arizona, a very small rural community (about 2000 residents) that I engaged with students as part of service learning design studio project for their river restoration and recreation plan last Spring. Since they do not have much resources, I simply would like to help as much possible.  

Kearny's Town Council aims to "quickly draft a LAW of some sort that does not cause too much angst among the off-road vehicle enthusiasts but still gives our law enforcement the "teeth" to keep the fragile re-planted areas safe so the plants have time to take root and grow." They are seeking examples or models. 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks!
