Description

This project funds parkland acquisitions that serve county residents on a neighborhood or community basis. The acquisitions funded under this project include local, neighborhood, neighborhood conservation area, and community-use urban parks. This project also includes funds for land surveys, appraisals, settlement expenses, site restoration, and other related acquisition costs. Acquisitions can include new parkland or additions to existing parks, and are pursued when they become available, if sufficient funds exist. To the extent possible, the Commission acquires parkland through dedication at the time of subdivision; however, to meet all parkland needs, this method must be supplemented by a direct land purchase program.
