the cities within the jurisdiction of the authority are further
encouraged to maintain their existing commitment of local funds for
these purposes.



35171.  (a) The authority shall review and assess the needs for
acquisition, preservation, or maintenance of open-space lands. As
part of this review and assessment, the authority shall solicit
proposals from the cities in the county within the boundaries of the
authority and from a citizens' advisory committee, the membership of
which shall be determined by the authority based upon criteria which
provides a broad representation of interests within the authority's
jurisdiction. The membership of the citizens' advisory committee
shall reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the population
within the authority's jurisdiction. The authority shall adopt a
procedure for evaluating these proposals in consultation with the
cities and the citizens' advisory committee in the authority's
jurisdiction. The entity submitting any proposal shall consider the
impact the proposal may have on the availability of affordable
housing.
   (b) Based on the evaluation, the authority shall prepare a plan
for the expenditure of the revenues expected to be derived from
funding provided for this division, together with other federal,
state, local, and private improvements, and funding.
   (c) In addition to acquisition, preservation, or maintenance of
open-space lands, the expenditure plan shall also include projections
of revenues likely to be available in the next five years for
capital, maintenance, and operational purposes. The expenditure plan
shall establish general areas for acquisition without identifying
specific parcels, and shall be periodically reviewed and amended.

open-space lands shall occur until the initial expenditure plan is
approved.
