Proposal Offers New Hope among Grimm Alternatives

If you’re a fan of Johnson Valley OHV Area, you’re probably well aware of the current fight to try to keep the Hammers open for future generations of outdoor and off road enthusiasts. The fight has been a long hard-fought battle every step of the way to try to come to an agreement that can satisfy both the Marine Corps at 29 Palms as well as the off road community. The BLM estimates that off roaders bring in a total of $71.5 million into the local economy every year so losing the Hammers would not only affect the off road community, it would also cripple the local economy.

Many believe the Marine Corps position that a land sharing compromise (69 days out of the year would be set aside for the Marine Corps under the Alternative 4) would destroy their readiness is unfounded. The Marines have been at war for the past 10 years with the MEB level training requirement in place without the expansion. Their most recent USMC training order 3502.2 states on pg. 6 how MEB level exercises will be successfully conducted maintaining readiness before the 29 Palms land expansion is complete.
