SECTION 5096.241-5096.243



5096.241.  The Legislature recognizes that public financial
resources are inadequate to meet all capital outlay needs of the
state park system and that the development of recently acquired units
of the state park system has proceeded at a rate that has prevented
their full potential for public use from being realized. Accordingly,
it is declared to be the policy of the state that funds allocated
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 5096.231 shall be appropriated
primarily for projects that accomplish the following:
   (a) Serve metropolitan population centers and accommodate day-use
and weekend-overnight visits.
   (b) Provide for the development of existing units with the minimum
facilities necessary for accessibility, use, and interpretation.
   (c) Rehabilitate facilities at existing units that will provide
for more efficient management and reduced operational costs.
   (d) Minimize dependence on motor vehicles and reduce other forms
of energy and water consumption through appropriately designed
facilities.
   (e) Acquire those lands which will lead to the completion of
ongoing projects.


5096.242.  (a) Any Member of the Legislature, the State Park and
Recreation Commission, the California Coastal Commission, or the
Secretary of the Resources Agency may nominate any project to be
funded under this article for study by the Department of Parks and
Recreation. The State Park and Recreation Commission shall nominate
projects after holding at least one public hearing to seek project
proposals from individuals, citizen groups, the Department of Parks
and Recreation, and other public agencies. Any of the commissions
shall make nominations by vote of its membership.
   (b) The Department of Parks and Recreation shall study any project
so nominated. In addition to the procedures required by Section
5006, the Department of Parks and Recreation shall submit to the
Legislature and to the Secretary of the Resources Agency annually a
report consisting of a prioritized listing and comparative evaluation
of all projects nominated for study, in accordance with the
following schedule:
   (1) March 1, 1985, for projects nominated prior to January 1,
1985.
   (2) November 1, 1985, for projects nominated prior to June 30,
1985, and after January 1, 1985.
   (3) November 1, 1986, and each November 1 thereafter for projects
nominated during the 12 months ending June 30, 1986, and each June 30
thereafter.
   (c)  Nominated projects shall be approved by the Secretary of the
Resources Agency and forwarded by the secretary to the Director of
Finance for inclusion in the Budget Bill.



5096.243.  (a) Acquisition for the state park system by purchase or
by eminent domain shall be under the Property Acquisition Law
(commencing with Section 15850 of the Government Code).
   (b) Work efforts for stewardship purposes may include, but are not
limited to, such objectives as the control of major erosion and
geologic hazards, the restoration and improvement of critical plant
and animal habitat, the control and elimination of exotic species
encroachment, the stabilization of coastal dunes and bluffs, and the
planning necessary to implement those activities. Those efforts may
not include activities which merely supplement normal park system
operations or which are usually funded from other sources.
