Anza Borrego Desert SPApproved by the State Parks Commission on February 11, 2005, the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park General Plan was put into its final form and is located below (by document sections).

As is the case with the following document, general plans create a framework which guides day-to-day decision-making within the Park.  Further, general plans provide a basis for developing focused management plans, specific project plans, and other proposals which implement the general plan’s goals. However, General Plans stop short of defining specific measures and/or timeframes for fulfilling these goals.
