Mobile Workshops Scheduled for Ocotillo Wells SVRA

We want to hear from you President’s Day weekend!

California State Parks will be holding a mobile workshop on February 18th and February 19th as part of the Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan Update. The purpose of these workshops is to share work that has already been completed for the General Plan Update process and to collect your input on draft goals to be included in the Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan.

The mobile workshops will be held in 4 locations over 2 days. The approximate times and locations for the mobile workshop are:

California State Parks recently kicked-off a comprehensive update of the General Plan for the Ocotillo Wells SVRA. A General Plan is a broad-based policy document that establishes a long-range vision and goals. A General Plan also provides direction on future types of improvements, services, and programs. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be prepared as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The EIR will evaluate potential environmental effects associated with adoption of the General Plan.

The current version of the General Plan was adopted in 1982. The purpose of the General Plan Update is to revise the plan to reflect changing conditions and issues, include additional land that is now part of Ocotillo Wells SVRA, and to update the vision, goals, and policies set forth in the plan. Public input will be used to help guide development of the General Plan Update.
