state-owned California Exposition land in the American River flood
plain as it exists on January 1, 1977.
   (b) "Bushy Lake area" means that portion of the California

the parkway, a 29-mile open-space greenbelt in the lower American
River flood plain.
   (c) The California Exposition flood plain contains an unprotected
block of significant riparian habitat remaining in the lower American

toe of the levee as it exists on January 1, 1977, on approximately 11
unsurfaced acres beginning at least 400 feet east of the Bushy Lake

levee eastward of the Bushy Lake area and extending not more than a
distance of 300 feet riverward from such levee.
   (b) The California Exposition and State Fair also may utilize the
area referenced in subdivision (a) for California Exposition
exhibitor parking related to agricultural and equestrian events
taking place on the California Exposition land in a livestock

total number of days that parking may be permitted under this
subdivision and subdivision (a) shall not exceed 34 days per year.
   (c) In addition to the parking permitted by subdivisions (a) and
(b), one acre of the existing unsurfaced 11-acre parking area shall
be open to parkway users for public access to include equestrian

only if the California Exposition's exclusive use for parking on the
entire 11 unsurfaced acres during the State Fair as authorized in
subdivision (a) and for exhibitor parking related to agricultural and
equestrian events taking place at the California Exposition
livestock pavilion and equestrian arena, as authorized by subdivision
(b), is not impeded.
   (d) The coordination and management of public parkway user access
and parking and the California Exposition's periodic exclusive use of
the unsurfaced 11-acre area for a period that shall not exceed 34
days per year, as specified in subdivisions (b) and (c), shall be
addressed in a management agreement between the American River
Parkway Manager and the California Exposition and State Fair. The
management agreement shall be consistent with this section.



5834.  The California Exposition and State Fair Board of Directors
shall preserve and manage, or provide, pursuant to an agreement with
the American River Parkway Manager, for the management of, the Bushy
Lake area in accordance with Section 5019.71 and the land use
designations and policies of the American River Parkway Plan.




5835.  In enacting this chapter, it is not the intent of the
Legislature to require removal, or preclude use, repair, or
additional construction of, highways, electric transmission lines,
sewage lines, or waterlines through the California Exposition flood
plain. Further, it is not the intent of the Legislature to preclude
the use of emergency vehicles, maintenance vehicles, or vehicles
necessary for the construction of parkway facilities.
