Other efforts on saving JV, found this on a San Diego message forum.

I found the following on a San Diego area Jeep message board and thought it was worthy of posting here...

The Partnership For Johnson Valley (PFJV) presented a PowerPoint
brief to the Marine staff at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base. The
brief was related to the military's proposed expansion into the
185,000+ acres of the Johnson Valley Open Access area currently
managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The presentation was
part of an ongoing effort by the Partnership to exchange information
with the Marines, to show the impact that the proposed expansion
would have on the diverse group of stakeholders in the open multiple
use area. The affected stakeholders include, but are not limited to:
land owners, Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts, geocachers,
historical organizations, mineralogists, equestrian groups, RC plane
organizations, the film industry, other business groups, and youth

"The Partnership is reaching out to all of the stakeholders that
could be impacted by the expansion of the Twentynine Palms Marine
Base," commented Harry Baker, Chairman of PFJV.

The original meeting with the military was orchestrated by Ed
Waldheim, a past commissioner of the California OHV Commission, who
represented OHV interests in Sacramento for 10 years. At the original
meeting a coalition of groups were asked to participate to represent
local stakeholders. They were subsequently invited back by the
military to give a formal presentation of issues discussed. After the
second military meeting, the coalition participants agreed to form a
Partnership, and establish themselves as a non-profit 501(c)(3) under
the California Trail Users Coalition. The nonprofit organization was
formed to represent the interests of all affected stakeholders in the
Johnson Valley proposed expansion.

"Johnson Valley is critical to the film industry because it
represents the largest open unrestricted area in California where
filmmakers can shoot 360 degree desert scenes. Without Johnson
Valley's diversity and ease of use, the Industry will simply leave
California to film elsewhere," said Sheri Davis, Director of the
Inland Empire Film Commission.

Ms. Davis adds, "Annually, Johnson Valley open-access represents
10,000 California-based film industry jobs."

This from Cycle News;

The leadership of PFJV has been cooperatively working with the
military and the affected Stakeholders in an effort to explore
alternatives to the proposed land expansion. The Partnership For
Johnson Valley, is led by Harry Baker, Chairman with Mark Howlett as
Executive Director, and Wayne Nosala as Secretary.

To help with these efforts, the Partnership is asking for the support
of other interested stakeholders in the area, and is seeking new
members to join the Partnership For Johnson Valley. For those
interested in assisting this effort, please contact Harry Baker or
Mark Howlett at Info@....

About The Partnership for Johnson Valley: Our Mission is to unite the
many people who enjoy the diverse activities available in the
multiple-access area of Johnson Valley. Our charter is to promote
responsible recreation and the use of desert resources through
conservation and education. The goal of the Partnership is to ensure
public open-access to the area in the present, and for the future
generations who Live, Work, and Recreate in Johnson Valley.
