Working Paper #2
Working Paper #2 describes the existing conditions for a set of topics relevant to the Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan (download here). The overall purpose of Working Paper #2 is to present data and information regarding the existing character of Ocotillo Wells SVRA and provide a baseline inventory of the physical, environmental, and social resources present. Information presented in this working paper will also serve as background for the development of the draft planning alternatives.
The content of Working Paper #2 will ultimately serve as the basis for the “Existing Conditions” chapter of the Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan. The technical information included in this document will continue to be refined until the Draft Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan is published. Environmental compliance documents will also be prepared for the Draft Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan. These documents will assess the potential environmental impacts of implementing the General Plan, and will include an “Existing Setting” section that will be similar to the contents of this working paper. The Draft Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan will be prepared after a preferred alternative is identified.
