Description

This project funds non-local parkland acquisitions that serve county residents on a regional or countywide basis. Non-local parks include Regional, Recreational, Conservation, Stream Valley, Special, and Historic Parks, and Urban Parks of county-wide significance. 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.
