Johnson Valley Update - Local Communities Support Keeping Johnson Valley (aka "the Hammers) open for OHV use

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

On Tuesday, August 13, the Twenty nine Palms City Council voted unanimously to support the Johnson Valley National Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area. This plan was authored by Congressman Paul Cook.  BRC believes this signals a growing trend by local government to take an active role in supporting 21st Century comprehensive land use bills.

BRC believes that support from local elected officials is a critical component of new congressional land-use designations.   Top down federal land designations that emanate in Washington, DC. With little or no support or input from affected governments and the grassroots are doomed to failure on a number of fronts.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
