A Portion of the Freeman Property Added to Ocotillo Wells SV

The Freeman property (also known as Truckhaven/Desert Cahuilla) was acquired by California State Parks in 2006. Senator Denise Ducheny and Senator Dennis Hollingsworth recently convened a group of stakeholders to establish a plan for dividing the Freeman Property between Anza Borrego Desert State Park and Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA).

Following the stakeholder group meetings, the plan was finalized under Senate Bill 855. This legislation specifies that the northwestern portion of the property be annexed to Anza Borrego Desert State Park and the southeastern portion of the property be annexed to Ocotillo Wells SVRA. This map depicts the annexations. The Ocotillo Wells SVRA addition, now called “Ocotillo Wells North” for general planning purposes only, will be included in the General Plan and EIR project that is underway.

Outreach activities in early 2011 will provide opportunities for the public and stakeholders to help identify planning issues and opportunities for Ocotillo Wells North as part of the General Plan process. Sign up to be notified of upcoming public participation activities.

Can some tell me where the money came from to purchese the freeman property?
Last I heard the state parks system had no money and were trying to close some parks,
so why does the non ohv park system need more land that can't afford to manage?
If OHV funds were used, why is some of the land going to be closed to green sticker ohv'ers?

don't know where the money came from, but when I spoke to the Ranger last time out to OW he stated the area was for street legal OHV's. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
