BILL NUMBER:S6219

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the parks, recreation and historic
preservation law, in relation to requiring all leases, licenses and
management agreements relating to state parks and historic sites to
comply with the park's or historic site's master plan

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Requires certain leases and management agreements entered into by the
office of parks, recreation and historic preservation to comply with
master plans.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Every lease, license and management agreement, relating to the use or
management of any state park or historic site, having a term of more
than one year, entered into by the office shall comply with the
recommendations in the management or master plan of the state park or
historic site to which the lease, license or management agreement
pertains.

JUSTIFICATION:

Management and master plans are valuable tools that outline specifics
regarding the environmental, historic, cultural, scenic, interpretive,
and recreational resources of a park or historic site. They also
provide a future plan and goals for each of the different aspects of a
park or historic site and offer the public an opportunity to comment.
Tying long-term leases and agreements to the planning goals outlined
in the master or management plans gives structure and a framework for
what types of activities should be permitted in a park setting and
holds such activities accountable to the established plan.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2014: This is a new bill in the Senate.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
