BLM Special Recreation Permit Subgroup Members Selected, First Meeting Set for Moreno Valley

The California Desert Advisory Council (DAC) has selected members for the Special Recreation Permits (SRP) Subgroup. They are: Meg Grossglass, representing the DAC; Holli Bechard, an off-road racing and equestrian enthusiast; Jerry Grabow, representing the American Motorcyclists Association, District 37; Jeff Knoll, an off-road racing organizer; Clayton Miller, representing the Southern Region of the California Off-Road Vehicle Association; Rob Niemela, representing the American Motorcyclists Association, District 38; and Wayne Nosala, an off-road racing enthusiast.

The DAC recently established the ongoing SRP Subgroup to identify operational issues in the application of required SRP procedures, provide comments about current or proposed actions by BLM, and aid in accurately communicating SRP procedures to interested parties. Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, input from the subgroup will be presented directly to the DAC for its deliberation and consideration.  The DAC, in turn, in its advisory capacity, develops recommendations for the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) California Desert District manager concerning use, classification, retention, disposal, or other aspects of public land planning and management in the public interest.

The first meeting of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) California Desert Advisory Council (DAC) Special Recreation Permit (SRP) Subgroup will be held Thursday, June 23 in Moreno Valley, Calif.  The newly formed subgroup will meet from 3 to 6 p.m. at the California Desert District Office, 22835 Calle San Juan de Los Lagos, Moreno Valley, CA 92108.  The public is invited to attend.
