SECTION 5096.71-5096.102



5096.71.  This chapter may be cited as the State Beach, Park,
Recreational, and Historical Facilities Bond Act of 1974 or as the Z'
berg-Collier Park Bond Act.


5096.72.  The Legislature of the State of California hereby finds
and declares that:
   (a) It is the responsibility of this state to provide and to
encourage the provision of outdoor recreation opportunities for the
citizens of California;
   (b) When there is proper planning and development, open-space
lands contribute not only to a healthy physical and moral
environment, but also contribute to the economic betterment of the
state, and, therefore, it is in the public interest for the state to
acquire areas for recreation, conservation, and preservation and to
aid local governments of the state in acquiring and developing such
areas as will contribute to the realization of the policy declared in
this chapter.



5096.73.  The Legislature further finds and declares that:
   (a) The present public outdoor recreation areas and facilities in
the state are inadequate to accommodate the demands made on them at
the present time and will become critically inadequate as time
progresses.
   (b) Land values are increasing at a steady rate and any delay by
the state in securing additional lands for park and recreation
purposes will result not only in the loss of suitable lands for
recreation purposes, but also will reduce the economic ability of the
state to acquire such lands.
   (c) At a special election consolidated with the 1974 direct
primary election, the people of the State of California will vote
upon a proposition authorizing a state bond issue in the amount of
two hundred fifty million dollars ($250,000,000) to provide the
moneys for the acquisition and development of lands needed for
recreation purposes.
   (d) It is desirable for the people of this state to have prior
notice of the proposed disposition and allocation of the proceeds of
this bond issue.



5096.74.  Bonds in the total amount of two hundred fifty million
dollars ($250,000,000), or so much thereof as is necessary, may be
issued and sold to provide a fund to be used for carrying out the
purposes expressed hereinafter, and to be used to reimburse the
General Obligation Bond Expense Revolving Fund pursuant to Section
16724.5 of the Government Code. Said bonds shall, when sold, be and
constitute a valid and binding obligation of the State of California,
and the full faith and credit of the State of California are hereby
pledged for the punctual payment of both principal and interest on
said bonds as said principal and interest become due and payable.



5096.75.  There shall be collected each year and in the same manner
and at the same time as other state revenue is collected such sum in
addition to the ordinary revenues of the state as shall be required
to pay the principal and interest on said bonds maturing in said
year, and it is hereby made the duty of all officers charged by law
with any duty in regard to the collection of said revenue to do and
perform each and every act which shall be necessary to collect such
additional sum.



5096.76.  There is hereby appropriated from the General Fund in the
State Treasury for the purpose of this act, such an amount as will

years.

counties, cities, or cities and counties, in connection with park
and beach purposes. For the purpose of acquiring such open-space
lands or scenic easements the state and counties, cities, or cities
and counties may exercise the power of eminent domain.



5096.86.  The ninety million dollars ($90,000,000) authorized by
Section 5096.85 for grants shall be allocated to the counties, such
allocation to be based upon the estimated population of the counties
on July 1, 1980, as projected by the Department of Finance.
   Each county's apportionment will be in the same ratio as the
county's population is to the state's total population; provided,
however, that each county shall be entitled to receive an allocation
of not less than two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000); and
provided, further, that any grant made to a city, district, or
regional public agency shall be subtracted from the total otherwise
allocable under the provisions of this chapter to the county or
counties in which the city, district, or regional public agency is
located. Advance grants may be made for development projects.
However, 10 percent of the grant funds shall be withheld until the
project is audited by the state.
   Each county shall consult with all cities and districts within the
county which are authorized to provide park and recreation services
and shall develop and submit to the state a priority plan for
expenditure of the county's allocation, including expenditures for
city and district projects, by June 30, 1975. The priority plan for
expenditure of the total county allocation shall be approved by at
least 50 percent of the cities and districts representing 50 percent
of the population of the cities and districts within the county, and
by the county board of supervisors. Failure to submit an approved
priority plan by June 30, 1975, shall result in a 10-percent annual
reduction in the total county allocation until the priority plan is
submitted. Any funds not allocated to a county shall remain in the
bond fund and shall be expended under the same conditions as set
forth in Section 5096.87 in 1980. By June 30, 1977, if agreement on
the priority plan for expenditure has not been submitted to the
state, the board of supervisors shall petition the Secretary of the
Resources Agency to distribute to high-priority projects the
remaining 80 percent of the county's total allocation.
   Applications for individual projects appearing on the priority
plan for expenditure may be submitted directly to the state by the
individual jurisdictions. In the event that any particular
jurisdiction's project is withdrawn from funding because of
circumstances beyond its control, the application for any substitute
project by such jurisdiction not originally appearing on the approved
priority plan for expenditure shall be approved by the county board
of supervisors.


5096.87.  On July 1, 1980, the Secretary of the Resources Agency
shall cause to be totaled the unencumbered balances remaining in the
State Beach, Park, Recreational, and Historical Facilities Fund of
1974. A program shall be submitted in the budget for the 1981-1982
fiscal year to appropriate this balance. Unencumbered funds under
subdivision (a) of Section 5096.85 shall be reappropriated for grants
to local jurisdictions only. The remainder of the program shall
consist of projects deemed to be of highest priority from among the
purposes expressed in subdivisions (b) to (e), inclusive, of Section
5096.85 and shall not be subject to the maximum amounts allocated to
those purposes in Section 5096.85.


5096.88.  Projects involving state funds only, pursuant to
subdivisions (b), (c), and (e) of Section 5096.85, shall originate by
legislative resolution, resolutions, or resolutions of the State
Park and Recreation Commission directing studies of the projects
included therein or upon initiative of the Secretary of the Resources
Agency directing a study of the projects included therein.
   The costs of these project studies shall be borne by the State
Beach, Park, Recreational, and Historical Facilities Fund of 1974.
   Allocations for the purposes of subdivision (d) of Section 5096.85
that are authorized by the Legislature and approved by the Governor

Historical Facilities Fund of 1974 and shall be expended in
accordance with the provisions of the Wildlife Conservation Law of
1947 (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 1300), Division 2, Fish and
Game Code) and in accordance with a master plan drafted as an element
of the State Environmental Goals and Policy Report prepared pursuant
to Section 65041 of the Government Code. Local and state projects
pursuant to subdivisions (a), (b), (c), and (e) of Section 5096.85
shall be in accord with the California Outdoor Recreation Resources
Plan.


5096.89.  An application for a state grant pursuant to subdivision
(a) of Section 5096.85 shall be submitted to the Secretary of the
Resources Agency. The application for the state grant shall be
accompanied by an adopted plan showing park and recreation lands and
facilities, existing and proposed, sufficient to enable the state to
determine the needs of the general public for recreation lands and
facilities in the applicant's jurisdiction and the quality and
quantity thereof. The project for which funds are being requested
shall appear on the applicant's plan. The applicant shall state that
the project is compatible with the land use plans of those
jurisdictions immediately surrounding the project. Where the project
land or facilities are located outside the political boundaries of
the applicant, such project lands or facilities shall appear on the
adopted plan of the jurisdiction in which the project is located.
Prior to the approval of any project, the applying jurisdiction's
park stewardship history will be reviewed for protecting existing
park and recreation and open-space resources and operating and
maintaining areas to acceptable standards. The Secretary of the
Resources Agency, in cooperation with the Office of Planning and
Research, shall review the material submitted by the county or
counties for completeness and conformity with the State Environmental
Goals and Policy Report. All applications shall contain an
environmental impact statement in compliance with the Environmental
Quality Act of 1970 (commencing with Section 21000 of the Public

subdivisions (b), (c), (d), and (e) of Section 5096.85. This priority
ranking shall take into account and be based upon the needs
specified in Section 5096.90.
   In addition, the statement setting forth the priorities shall
include the relationship of each separate project on the priority
list to a proposed time schedule for the acquisition and development
expenditures associated with the accomplishment of the projects
contained in such list. All projects proposed in the Governor's
Budget of each fiscal year shall be contained in the Budget Bill as
provided in Section 5096.79.


5096.92.  Projects authorized for the purposes set forth in

of the property for a period of time and under such conditions as
mutually agreed upon by the state and the seller so long as the
seller promises to pay such taxes on his interest in property as
shall become due, owing or unpaid on the interest created by such
agreement and so long as the seller conducts his operations on the
land according to specifications issued by the Director of Parks and
Recreation to protect the property for the public use for which it
was acquired. A copy of such agreement shall be filed with the county

and counties may exercise the power of eminent domain.



5096.86.  The ninety million dollars ($90,000,000) authorized by
Section 5096.85 for grants shall be allocated to the counties, such
allocation to be based upon the estimated population of the counties

   Each county's apportionment will be in the same ratio as the
county's population is to the state's total population; provided,
however, that each county shall be entitled to receive an allocation
of not less than two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000); and

located. Advance grants may be made for development projects.
However, 10 percent of the grant funds shall be withheld until the
project is audited by the state.
   Each county shall consult with all cities and districts within the
county which are authorized to provide park and recreation services
and shall develop and submit to the state a priority plan for
expenditure of the county's allocation, including expenditures for
city and district projects, by June 30, 1975. The priority plan for
expenditure of the total county allocation shall be approved by at
least 50 percent of the cities and districts representing 50 percent
of the population of the cities and districts within the county, and
by the county board of supervisors. Failure to submit an approved
priority plan by June 30, 1975, shall result in a 10-percent annual
reduction in the total county allocation until the priority plan is
submitted. Any funds not allocated to a county shall remain in the
bond fund and shall be expended under the same conditions as set
forth in Section 5096.87 in 1980. By June 30, 1977, if agreement on
the priority plan for expenditure has not been submitted to the
state, the board of supervisors shall petition the Secretary of the
Resources Agency to distribute to high-priority projects the
remaining 80 percent of the county's total allocation.
   Applications for individual projects appearing on the priority
plan for expenditure may be submitted directly to the state by the
individual jurisdictions. In the event that any particular
jurisdiction's project is withdrawn from funding because of
circumstances beyond its control, the application for any substitute
project by such jurisdiction not originally appearing on the approved
priority plan for expenditure shall be approved by the county board
of supervisors.


5096.87.  On July 1, 1980, the Secretary of the Resources Agency

fiscal year to appropriate this balance. Unencumbered funds under
subdivision (a) of Section 5096.85 shall be reappropriated for grants
to local jurisdictions only. The remainder of the program shall
consist of projects deemed to be of highest priority from among the
purposes expressed in subdivisions (b) to (e), inclusive, of Section
5096.85 and shall not be subject to the maximum amounts allocated to
those purposes in Section 5096.85.


5096.88.  Projects involving state funds only, pursuant to
subdivisions (b), (c), and (e) of Section 5096.85, shall originate by

Park and Recreation Commission directing studies of the projects
included therein or upon initiative of the Secretary of the Resources
Agency directing a study of the projects included therein.
   The costs of these project studies shall be borne by the State
Beach, Park, Recreational, and Historical Facilities Fund of 1974.
   Allocations for the purposes of subdivision (d) of Section 5096.85
that are authorized by the Legislature and approved by the Governor

Historical Facilities Fund of 1974 and shall be expended in
accordance with the provisions of the Wildlife Conservation Law of
1947 (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 1300), Division 2, Fish and
Game Code) and in accordance with a master plan drafted as an element
of the State Environmental Goals and Policy Report prepared pursuant
to Section 65041 of the Government Code. Local and state projects
pursuant to subdivisions (a), (b), (c), and (e) of Section 5096.85
shall be in accord with the California Outdoor Recreation Resources
Plan.


5096.89.  An application for a state grant pursuant to subdivision
(a) of Section 5096.85 shall be submitted to the Secretary of the
Resources Agency. The application for the state grant shall be
accompanied by an adopted plan showing park and recreation lands and
facilities, existing and proposed, sufficient to enable the state to
determine the needs of the general public for recreation lands and
facilities in the applicant's jurisdiction and the quality and
quantity thereof. The project for which funds are being requested
shall appear on the applicant's plan. The applicant shall state that
the project is compatible with the land use plans of those
jurisdictions immediately surrounding the project. Where the project
land or facilities are located outside the political boundaries of
the applicant, such project lands or facilities shall appear on the
adopted plan of the jurisdiction in which the project is located.
Prior to the approval of any project, the applying jurisdiction's
park stewardship history will be reviewed for protecting existing
park and recreation and open-space resources and operating and
maintaining areas to acceptable standards. The Secretary of the
Resources Agency, in cooperation with the Office of Planning and
Research, shall review the material submitted by the county or
counties for completeness and conformity with the State Environmental
Goals and Policy Report. All applications shall contain an
environmental impact statement in compliance with the Environmental
Quality Act of 1970 (commencing with Section 21000 of the Public

Secretary of the Resources Agency for review. The Director of Parks
and Recreation shall provide the Secretary of the Resources Agency
with a statement concerning each project originated pursuant to
subdivisions (b), (c), and (e) of Section 5096.85, which statement
shall include the priority of the project in regard to the following
needs:

priority basis within each of the purposes as set forth in
subdivisions (b), (c), (d), and (e) of Section 5096.85. This priority
ranking shall take into account and be based upon the needs
specified in Section 5096.90.
   In addition, the statement setting forth the priorities shall
include the relationship of each separate project on the priority
list to a proposed time schedule for the acquisition and development
expenditures associated with the accomplishment of the projects
contained in such list. All projects proposed in the Governor's
Budget of each fiscal year shall be contained in the Budget Bill as
provided in Section 5096.79.


5096.92.  Projects authorized for the purposes set forth in

of the property for a period of time and under such conditions as
mutually agreed upon by the state and the seller so long as the
seller promises to pay such taxes on his interest in property as
shall become due, owing or unpaid on the interest created by such
agreement and so long as the seller conducts his operations on the
land according to specifications issued by the Director of Parks and
Recreation to protect the property for the public use for which it
was acquired. A copy of such agreement shall be filed with the county
clerk in the county in which the property lies. Such arrangement
shall be compatible with the operation of the area by the state, as
determined by the Director of Parks and Recreation.



5096.94.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, for the
purposes of this chapter acquisition may include gifts, purchases,
leases, easements, eminent domain, the transfer of property for other
property of like value, purchases of development rights, and other
interests unless the Legislature shall hereafter otherwise provide.
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), notwithstanding any other
provisions of law.


5096.95.  All grants, gifts, devises or bequests to the state,
conditional or unconditional, for park, conservation, recreation or

other use of the area shall be permitted except by specific act of
the Legislature.



5096.97.  Lands acquired by the state shall consist predominantly of
open or natural lands, including lands under water capable of being
utilized for multiple recreation purposes, and lands necessary for
historic preservation. No funds derived from the bonds authorized by
this section shall be expended for the construction of any reservoir
designated as a part of the "State Water Facilities," as defined in
subdivision (d) of Section 12934 of the Water Code, but such funds
may be expended for the acquisition and development of beaches,
parks, recreational facilities and historical monuments at or in the
vicinity of any such reservoir.



5096.98.  (a) The appropriation made by Item 379(c) of the Budget
Act of 1973 for the acquisition of Century Ranch for the state park

and declares that:
   (a) It is the responsibility of this state to provide and to
encourage the provision of outdoor recreation opportunities for the
citizens of California;
   (b) When there is proper planning and development, open-space
lands contribute not only to a healthy physical and moral
environment, but also contribute to the economic betterment of the
state, and, therefore, it is in the public interest for the state to
acquire areas for recreation, conservation, and preservation and to
aid local governments of the state in acquiring and developing such
areas as will contribute to the realization of the policy declared in
this chapter.



5096.73.  The Legislature further finds and declares that:
   (a) The present public outdoor recreation areas and facilities in
the state are inadequate to accommodate the demands made on them at
the present time and will become critically inadequate as time
progresses.
   (b) Land values are increasing at a steady rate and any delay by
the state in securing additional lands for park and recreation
purposes will result not only in the loss of suitable lands for
recreation purposes, but also will reduce the economic ability of the
state to acquire such lands.
   (c) At a special election consolidated with the 1974 direct
primary election, the people of the State of California will vote
upon a proposition authorizing a state bond issue in the amount of
two hundred fifty million dollars ($250,000,000) to provide the
moneys for the acquisition and development of lands needed for
recreation purposes.

pledged for the punctual payment of both principal and interest on
said bonds as said principal and interest become due and payable.



5096.75.  There shall be collected each year and in the same manner
and at the same time as other state revenue is collected such sum in
addition to the ordinary revenues of the state as shall be required
to pay the principal and interest on said bonds maturing in said
year, and it is hereby made the duty of all officers charged by law
with any duty in regard to the collection of said revenue to do and
perform each and every act which shall be necessary to collect such
additional sum.



5096.76.  There is hereby appropriated from the General Fund in the
State Treasury for the purpose of this act, such an amount as will

and interest on bonds issued and sold pursuant to the provisions of
this chapter, as said principal and interest become due and payable.
   (b) Such sum as is necessary to carry out the provisions of
Section 5096.77, which sum is appropriated without regard to fiscal
years.

   Such appropriations shall be subject to all limitations contained
in the Budget Bill and to all fiscal procedures prescribed by law
with respect to the expenditure of state funds. The section shall
contain proposed appropriations only for the program contemplated by

counties, cities, or cities and counties, in connection with park
and beach purposes. For the purpose of acquiring such open-space
lands or scenic easements the state and counties, cities, or cities
and counties may exercise the power of eminent domain.



5096.86.  The ninety million dollars ($90,000,000) authorized by
Section 5096.85 for grants shall be allocated to the counties, such
allocation to be based upon the estimated population of the counties
on July 1, 1980, as projected by the Department of Finance.
   Each county's apportionment will be in the same ratio as the
county's population is to the state's total population; provided,
however, that each county shall be entitled to receive an allocation
of not less than two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000); and

expenditure of the total county allocation shall be approved by at
least 50 percent of the cities and districts representing 50 percent
of the population of the cities and districts within the county, and
by the county board of supervisors. Failure to submit an approved
priority plan by June 30, 1975, shall result in a 10-percent annual
reduction in the total county allocation until the priority plan is
submitted. Any funds not allocated to a county shall remain in the
bond fund and shall be expended under the same conditions as set
forth in Section 5096.87 in 1980. By June 30, 1977, if agreement on
the priority plan for expenditure has not been submitted to the
state, the board of supervisors shall petition the Secretary of the
Resources Agency to distribute to high-priority projects the
remaining 80 percent of the county's total allocation.
