BACKGROUND:

The Board appropriated funding in the Capital Improvement Program for the purpose of developing County parks on the Byrom Property (Tax Map Parcels 6-16, 6-28D, and 6-29) and the Preddy Creek Property (Tax Map Parcel 22-1).  The park development for both properties is planned to occur during fiscal year 2009.  Chapter 11, Parks and Recreation Facilities, of the Albemarle County Code establishes and authorizes the enforcement of rules and regulations necessary to properly manage public park property.  Section 11-100 defines “Park” as land owned or controlled by the County which is used or designated to be used by the public for recreational purposes.  The above mentioned properties currently are not expressly open to public use and have not been formally designated for public recreational use by the Board.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 1:  Enhance the Quality of Life for all Citizens.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The Parks and Recreation Department is currently responsible for the management of the Byrom and Preddy Creek properties.  In order to clarify the authority for management of these properties prior to being open for public use, the Parks and Recreation Director is requesting that the Board formally designate these properties as “Parks” for public recreational use.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

This action has no budget impact.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board of Supervisors adopt the attached resolution formally designating Tax Map Parcels 6-16, 6-28D, 6-29 and 22-1 as park property to be used by the public for recreational purposes.
