ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE UP 14,731 ACRES OF OFF-ROAD RIDING AREAS FOR GEOTHERMAL POWER DEVELOPMENT?
The San Diego Off-Road Coalition needs all off-roaders to act now. There is grave danger to one of our favorite riding areas.
The Federal Bureau of Land Management wants to lease 14,731 acres of prime off-road land to companies to build geothermal energy plants. Over 80% of the land is inside the Ocotillo Wells SVRA. The remaining acres are just east of Pole Line road and have traditionally been enjoyed for off-roading.
Part of this is the area where the etnies rig always parks, where countless video parts and photos have been shot for your favorite videos and mags, and where events like Red Bull Ride to the Hills and the etnies Two Wheel Tour have taken place. All that could be a thing of the past if this goes through....
It is critical that off-road enthusiasts send their WRITTEN COMMENTS to the BLM to oppose this project.
Also, read this Cycle News article on the subject.
If you value OCOTILLO WELLS you need to take the time to mail a comment and get ALL YOUR FRIENDS to do the same.
DO IT NOW - DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!
The San Diego Off-Road Magazine has excellent guidelines for action. Written comments mailed have the most effect, so sit down, write and send your comments today. Written comments are being taken until April 30.
