BLM Announces ISDRA Subgroup Public Meeting


The Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) Subgroup to the Desert Advisory Council (DAC) has scheduled a public meeting for June 27, 2013 at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) El Centro Field Office, 1661 S. 4th St., El Centro, CA 92243 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The meeting will provide the public a final opportunity to discuss the final ISDRA business plan and to formulate recommendations for presentation to the DAC in July.  Public safety will also be discussed.  The ISDRA Subgroup discussions and public involvement assists the BLM in managing the ISDRA.

The ISDRA Subgroup operates under the authority of the DAC and provides input to the BLM regarding issues pertinent to the ISDRA.  This metamorphosis of the dunes' former Technical Review Team to a Subgroup complies with federal regulations and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which governs such arrangements.

Representation on the subgroup consists of:

  • California OHV interests
  • Arizona OHV interests
  • OHV organizations
  • Imperial County
  • Local communities

If unable to attend, individuals are encouraged to submit comments via e-mail to ISDRAsubgroup@blm.gov. Individuals may also participate via a call-in line that will be announced on the subgroup website at: www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/elcentro/recreation/ohvs/isdra/dunesinfo/funding/isdradacsg.htm.
