The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released a draft Business Plan for the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA). The Business Plan calls for an increase in the weekly permit fee from $25 to $40 when purchased off-site. On-site weekly permits are proposed to be $70. The annual permit fee is proposed at $180. BLM intends to implement the fee increase on September 1, 2013.
The proposed public review and comment period has been limited to less than 3 weeks ending at 8:00 a.m. on November 5th.
The complete Business Plan is available at:http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/elcentro/recreation/ohvs/isdra/dunesinfo/docs/isdrabp.htmlPlease go to the Action Center for more information about how to participate in the public comment process. At a minimum we urge you to use the alert system to send an email to the BLM asking for an extension on the comment period.Original author: John
