Reason for Recommended Action/Background
The purpose of the Prop 68 Grant is to provide funds for local parks rehabilitation and improvements. Grant awards will be utilized to rehabilitate existing infrastructure and provide improvements at various parks throughout the County. The grant ties into the County’s Strategic Goal of Thriving Residents by improving physical environments which promote good health and provide recreational activities.

The General Services Department working with the Parks, Recreation, and Wildlife Advisory Committee (PRWAC) has identified several projects aimed at improving parks and related infrastructure. This grant will provide funds for the projects.

The projects include replacing existing playground equipment and adding shade structures over picnic tables at Esparto Community Park, and providing a pool cover at Tuli Mem Park in Esparto. It will also provide for expanded parking capacity at the dog park at Grassslands Park and solar panels at the Cache Creek Campground to increase power production and energy efficiency, as detailed in the table below:

New Solar Panels on Shade Structure/Carport Cache Creek Campground $  50,000
