Public Meeting – Vulture Mountain OHV area development meeting
PHOENIX – Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department (MCPRD) invites the public’s comments on the design and development of the OHV area on the south portion of a proposed Recreation & Public Purposes Act (R&PP) lease of a 1,046-acre parcel in the Vulture Mountains area.
A public open house-style meeting will be held October 5, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Phoenix Deer Valley Community Center located at 2001 W. Wahalla Lane., in Phoenix.
During this open house-style meeting, staff from the MCPRD, EPS Group, and the Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will be available, along with maps of the proposed facilities for review and discussion. MCPRD will “kick-off” the open house with a presentation at 6:15 p.m.
Under the proposal, MCPRD would develop a variety of recreational facilities on the south area of the R&PP including an OHV camp ground, staging area, OHV trail heads, restrooms, picnic ramadas, kids OHV training area, and other OHV related amenities. The R&PP Act allows for State, local governments and nonprofit organizations to apply for the leasing of public lands for the construction and maintenance of facilities such as schools, fire stations, and for parks.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will analyze this plan and its considerations in accordance with the agency’s approved land use plan, Wickenburg Travel Management Plan, and BLM’s multiple-use mission which supports conservation while managing working landscapes and connects the American people to their natural and cultural heritage through experiences on their public lands.
Any questions regarding this upcoming open house meeting may be directed to Ms. Lauren Bromley the Parks and Open Space Planner for Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department at LaurenBromley@mail.maricopa.gov.
