About the Project
California State Parks is revising the General Plan for Red Rock Canyon State Park to address changing conditions, analyze the latest information and data, and incorporate lands that have been added to Red Rock Canyon State Park since the existing 1982 General Plan was approved.
An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will also be prepared to meet the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
State Parks would like to announce that the Red Rock Canyon State Park General Plan Revision, Cultural Resource Summary Report and the Red Rock Canyon State Park General Plan Revision – Planning Area Biological Resources Report Summary are now available to be viewed online. These documents summarize the findings of the cultural resource analysis and the Biological Resources Report, both of which will be included in the Preliminary General Plan and associated Draft Environmental Impact Report.
State Parks is excited to announce the release of the Red Rock Canyon State Park Route Network Story Map Tool, developed for the general plan process. This interactive map tool depicts the existing route network and shows changes to it since 1994 when 20,500 acres of California Desert Conservation Area lands were transferred through the California Desert Protection Act. It also includes changes to the route network through resource management actions.
State Parks held three public meetings in Ridgecrest, Lancaster, and Bakersfield on October 23rd, 24th, and 25th, 2019 to provide updates on the revision of the General Plan for Red Rock Canyon State Park. State Parks is soliciting comments on the Revised Plan Concept presented at the meetings until December 12, 2019.
