Here's the power point presented by Mike Ayers of the BLM Calif. State Office today at the TRT meeting. This was the agenda item titled, "Federal Framework of Concession Management/Vendors." The BLM are evaluating whether using a concessionaire at the dunes will make things more efficient. This is not something that can happen over night and requires the process outlined in the power point. This time next year is the estimate for knowing whether the BLM thinks this direction is feasible.

The beginning of the end of the dunes.

I hope and pray that none of our leadership falls for this VERY slippery slope.

I would rather there be no concessions on OUR public land!!!

They reserve spots for the vendors to set up and that is another closure of sand to the rest of us!!! We can't camp there now as its reserved for the vendors!!!

Kick them out to private property!!!!
(The above statement is my own opinion and not that of the ASA's.)

Sounds like fee demo revisited. BLM can't or won't make the tough or right decisions so they pawn these things off to a private company. That company only will care about the contract, not the users (pretty much the same as the BLM now) but the result will either be ludicrous amounts of $$$ given to the concessionaire, or an endless revolving door of concessionaires that take the money and run. Either way it just adds another layer of BS to the system.

Unless, of course, they get some REAL duners to run the thing.

The BLM has no idea what they want or how they wish to proceed other than putting this presentation together. They had a copy of the request for proposal for a Lake Tahoe area location. It took the BLM 9 months just to write that up, After they figured out what they wanted in it. They haven't even come close to a plan for the RFP for the ISDRA. Hopefully the TRT and the public will have plenty of time for input on this.

BTW - I recorded the meeting and will be working over the next few days to format it into mp3 and uploaded to http://www.isdratrt.org along with the other documents and presentations.

Even the current vendor program is a bit much for my liking...and look how horribly managed that is.

Go visit Yosemite or some other national part to see what Glamis will become if they bring in a Concessionaire.

WAY more restrictions, WAY more closures, WAY more costs for the users

It would be the end of the dunes as a recreation area.

The CBD must be wetting their pants over this idea.
