Document Description
CDPR is initiating the process of preparing a General Plan and an associated EIR for the Truckhaven/Desert Cahuilla area and the Ocotillo Wells District. The purpose of the General Plan is to guide future development activities and management objectives of the project area. The General Plan will address the approximately 97,380 acres of the Ocotillo Wells District, including the existing Ocotillo Wells SVRA; Heber Dunes SVRA; as well as the Freeman Trust properties (under cooperative management as noted above), which were recently acquired with state Off-Highway Vehicle Trust Funds; and other land within the Truckhaven/Desert Cahuilla area. The General Plan will evaluate and address active recreation and resource management needs and designations. Determinations will be for unit naming, classification, and departmental management jurisdiction for the Truckhaven/Desert Cahuilla Tract. Jurisdictional interface issues with area local, regional, state, federal, tribal and special districts will be considered for the lands within the project area. In addition, the General Plan will address environmental and facility management goals, objectives, and policies to ensure long-term management of the lands within the project area.
