Park property: City of Modesto: Beard Brook Park.


The Safe Neighborhood Parks, Clean Water, Clean Air, and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2000 (the Villaraigosa-Keeley Act) authorizes the issuance of bonds for the purpose of financing a program for the acquisition, development, improvement, rehabilitation, restoration, enhancement, and protection of park, recreational, cultural, historical, fish and wildlife, lake, riparian, reservoir, river, and coastal resources, as specified. That bond act prohibits the use of the grant funds unless the applicant has agreed to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, using the property only for the purposes for which the grant was made and making no other use or sale or other disposition of the property, except as authorized by a specific act of the Legislature. This bill would authorize the City of Modesto, until June 30, 2023, to dispose of all or a portion of Beard Brook Park acquired, developed, or improved with grant moneys from the bond act described above, subject to the acquisition of replacement park property, as approved by the Department of Parks and Recreation, to be used for park purposes in perpetuity and at no cost to the state, as provided. This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City of Modesto.
