If you attended the Show Me Ride this past weekend you heard David Q. from the OHV Ambassadors speak about the future of the Vulture Mountains and plans to create a Maricopa County Park in the area. The creation of the park includes OHV related impact which could close some trails but also creates and OHV staging area at the old Airstrip near Vulture Mine. We encourage anybody with time and a passion OHV in the area to attend this meeting and speak to your desires to have this are still open for OHV users. Below is the official meeting information:

PHOENIX – Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department invites the public’s comments on the design and development for both the north and south portions 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 December 7, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wickenburg Community Center located at 160 N. Valentine Street in Wickenburg.

During this open house-style meeting, staff from the MCPRD, EPS, and 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 within the R&PP, including a day use area with trail heads, super playground, nature center and amphitheater, an overnight camp ground, an OHV camp ground, staging areas, and all related amenities associated with both day and overnight use. 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 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.
Additional information regarding the proposed development including maps can be found at the following park webpage: https://www.maricopacountyparks.net/vulture-mountains-recreation-area/
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.
