Bond Grants

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution, allocating $28,502,000 million in Safe Neighborhood Parks bond funds to seven (7) public agencies and directing the County Manager to negotiate and execute the grant agreements and provisions.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
On July 16, 1996, the Board of County Commissioners approved Ordinance No. 96-115 which authorizes issuance, subject to approval by special election, of $200 million in general obligation bonds for park projects; establishes a Citizens' Oversight Committee and empowers it to administer the bond program; and designates entities and projects eligible for bond funding. At the November 5, 1996, special election, 67 percent of those voting approved the bond program.

On May 6, 1997, the Board of County Commissioners appointed the Citizens' Oversight committee.
The Oversight Committee solicited and reviewed applications for fourth year funding and, in accordance with the master bond Resolution No. R-1193-97, has submitted the attached report recommending the allocation of $28,502,000 million in bond funds to public agencies for specific park projects (Attachment No. 1). A series bond resolution authorizing a $28,502,000 million bond sale will be scheduled for a future Commission agenda.
