I am totally in favor of neatly-painted parking spaces and ADA compliance, but, you people who voted for "easy clean-up" are sadly mistaken: the baked-on street pizza will be there all week. :?

Not to mention all the tents that were not weighed down... Can't stake rebar into concrete. Or will there be holes?

Paving the playa is fine, but you'll need to get it all out of there if you want to get green on the MOOP map.

From my understanding, the group behind this is working directly with the BLM to help in their efforts of playa preservation.

and imagine how soft and comfy it'd be,since the pavement would trap a lot of the water that evaporates, which creates the (approx. IIUC) 3' of solid ground we play on.

No drains though:
We documented clear and
synchronous threshold declines of 110 of 238 macroinvertebrate taxa in response to low levels
of impervious cover. Approximately 80% of the declining taxa did so between ;0.5% and 2%
impervious cover, whereas the last 20% declined sporadically from ;2% to 25% impervious
cover. Synchrony of individual responses resulted in distinct community-level thresholds
ranging from 0.68% (mountains), 1.28% (piedmont), and 0.96% (coastal plain) impervious
cover. Upper limits (95% confidence intervals) of community thresholds were ,2% cover in all
regions. Within distinct physiographic classes, higher-gradient, smaller catchments required
less impervious cover than lower gradient, larger catchments to elicit community thresholds.
Relatively few taxa showed positive responses to increasing impervious cover, and those that
did gradually increased in frequency and abundance, approximating a linear cumulative
distribution. The sharp, synchronous declines of numerous taxa established a consistent
threshold response at exceptionally low levels of catchment urbanization, and uncertainty
regarding the estimation of impervious cover from satellite data was mitigated by several
corroborating lines of evidence. We suggest that threshold responses of communities to urban
and other novel environmental gradients may be more prevalent than currently recognized.

Why not pave it in 7 sided paving stones spaced 1 inch apart to allow rebar and in cse of rain, drainage. Good for whatever Turtleburp was talking about and we could vacuum trash up then store paving stones in town and hire locals to guard them. Bring them out next year,recycle, be green and all that hippie crap I believe in. One time outlay of bucks and years of useful service.
