Scheduled to Address Land Use Changes in the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle
-- Representatives from the Bureau of Land Management and the Marine Corps will
host a Resource Management Group meeting about the changes in land use in the
Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area at the Lucerne Valley
Community Center on August 16, 2014 from 1-3 PM.
NOTICE OF MEETING AND TOUR OFF-HIGHWAY MOTOR VEHICLE RECREATION COMMISSION
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Commission, pursuant to authority contained in Section 5090.24 of the Public Resources Code and Section 11120 et seq. of the Government Code, will conduct a tour on May 1, 2014, of the El Mirage Dry Lake OHV Recreation Area and meet on May 2, 2014, according to the following schedule.
Thank you for your petition.
The Administration’s proposal for expansion of the land reserved for
use by the Marine Corps balances Marine Corps training requirements that
extend throughout the year with preserving safe public access for
recreational activities within certain areas of the Johnson Valley
Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area. The proposal was transmitted to Congress
for consideration on April 26, 2013, because, for areas greater than
5,000 acres, Congress is responsible for creating and renewing
withdrawal of public land for military training and testing.
This base expansion plan was developed over the course of nine years
in consultation with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), community
leaders, and recreational users and was subject to an environmental
impact statement that assessed the needs, alternatives and impacts of
large-scale training exercises at the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air
Ground Combat Center.

Taking over the Johnson
Valley open area within three miles of Cougar Buttes is still the Marines
