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.
