METROPARKS CACHE PERMITS 2018

Postby SuchaNana » Wed 2017-11-08, 13:48:50

Metroparks of the Toledo area is updating their Geocache Permit process & implementing Geocaching placement guidelines.
Existing Metroparks-issued permit holders, please send the old permit information and your current contact information to Jerri.Fink@metroparkstoledo.com.
Since Jerri has very old permits with outdated contact info, she needs to update this before January 1 for the 2018 permit.

To “Renew” your existing Geo permit please provide correct contact information. They're giving anyone who has a current permit till January 1st – January 15th to reissue their past permit. On January 16 all the permits that have not been received will be available for anyone to apply for. It will be a 'first completed application turned in' to Jerri process then that will receive the permit requested.
They will not be taking any permit applications till January 1, 2018.

Two caches only - NovaNikki https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC3EF_novanikki
and Ancient Lake https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC2DBE_ancient-lake
are grandfathered in for historical reasons and will need current contact info also.

All sites must be approved by Metroparks staff before a permit will be issued. Do not publish your cache on Geocaching.com until a permit has been approved.
Annual applications are required for all active caches by January 1st of each year. All caches not approved will be removed within 30 days. Cache permits may be renewed up to twice for a total of 3 years of placement time, with Metroparks reserving the right to not issue a permit renewal.

Each cache must have a separate application. Approved caches will receive a permit card, which must be visible on the outside of the container. Permit cards can be picked up at the Visitor's Center during open hours.

We're excited to partner with the Metroparks & look forward to this new exciting chapter in Geocaching.

I have been told to move a 10 year old cache >420' so that it is off of a marked trail, not a fire trail... I have been told that fire trails are not designated trails and should only be used in emergencies by staff and that caching on a fire lane that could be used for emergency vehicles is too dangerous. Guess this is some of the new guidelines...
