Working Paper #4
Draft Planning Alternatives
Working Paper #4 presents a “Parkwide Planning Framework” and “Area-Specific Planning Alternatives” that are being considered as part of the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) General Plan Update process. The Parkwide Planning Framework provides a comprehensive approach to evaluate management decisions that affect visitor experience and recreation opportunities; interpretation and education; park use and operations; and natural, physical, and cultural resource management for all of Ocotillo Wells SVRA. The Area-Specific Planning Alternatives highlight a range of potential management policies that are being considered for specific areas of Ocotillo Wells SVRA. The Area- Specific Planning Alternatives allow a tailored management approach to best fit the character and needs of each area. Together, the Parkwide Planning Framework and Area-Specific Planning Alternatives allow different management options to be considered before developing and adopting an updated General Plan for Ocotillo Wells SVRA.
