Heber Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area General Plan
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preperation

Document Description
The General Plan is the primary management document for each unit of the California State Park System, establishing its primary purpose and a management direction for its future. Heber Dunes SVRA was operated by the County of Imperial for more than 30 years. It was deeded to CDPR in 2007. Thus, OHMVR Division has initiated the process of preparing the first General Plan and an associated EIR for Heber Dunes SVRA. Planning Areas will be used in the General Plan to allow goals and guidelines to be developed that reflect area-specific conditions. Planning areas will be based on geographic relationships, resource values, management issues and goals, and visitor use and experiences. These goals and guidelines will guide park management and provide long-term direction for future facilities. Such facilities may include new parking areas or access points, park maintenance facilities and on-site housing, a park administration building and visitor center, interpretive kiosks, restrooms, picnic areas and ramadas, and trail corridors.
