City/County Joint Parks
FISCAL YEAR 2024 BUDGET
Project Name: City/County Joint Parks
Department: Parks & Recreation
Start Date: 7/01/2023
End Date: 6/30/2024
This will establish a funding stream for those recreational properties and facilities that are jointly operated by the City and Albemarle County. The establishment of such funding will permit the systematic and proactive replacement and renovation of these facilities, reducing liability and ensuring a safe environment for users. These projects would be similar in scope and scale to our small capital and capital improvements programs and not include regular operational maintenance activities such as mowing and restroom cleaning. The City/County split on capital funding is 50/50 for Ivy Creek Natural Area and for Darden Towe Park is 30.91% City and 69.09% County. The City has an obligation under our current management agreement with the County for joint operation for these areas. Costs reflected represent only the City's portion of the anticipated cost of the projects.
