Allocate Specified Excess Funds, available to the First Supervisorial District, in an amount not to exceed $500,000, to the Trust for Public Land for the Red Car Property Acquisition Project. 3. Authorize the Acting Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation, in his capacity as Acting Director of the Los Angeles County Regional Park and Open Space District, to award a grant, in an amount not to exceed $500,000, to the Trust For Public Land when applicable conditions have been met; and to administer the grant as of the date of award and pursuant to guidelines in the Procedural Guide for Specified, Per Parcel, and Excess Funds Projects; otherwise, funds shall remain in the

The Honorable Board of Directors 2/9/2016 Page 2 Excess Funds account. PURPOSE/JUSTIFICATION OF RECOMMENDED ACTION Approval of the recommended actions will allocate Specified Excess Funds, available to the First Supervisorial District pursuant to the Safe Neighborhood Parks Proposition of 1996 (1996 Proposition), in an amount not to exceed $500,000, to the Trust for Public Land (TPL) for the Red Car Property Acquisition Project (Project). The Project consists of the fee simple acquisition of approximately 10 acres in the Silver Lake area for open space and wildlife habitat between Griffith and Elysian Parks. The total estimated project cost is $1,550,000. The recommended Specified Excess Funds will be supplemented with $500,000 from City of Los Angeles AB1290 Funds and $550,000 from Santa Monica Mountains Conservation Proposition 84. It is also recommended that the Acting Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation (Acting Director), in his capacity as Acting Director of the Los Angeles County Regional Park and Open Space District, be authorized to award a grant to TPL when applicable conditions have been met. Applicable conditions include grantee qualifications, consistency between the projects and requirements of the 1996 Proposition, and grantee agreement with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirements for the projects, if applicable. It is further recommended that the Acting Director be authorize to administer the grant pursuant to the Procedural Guide previously approved by the Board. Implementation of Strategic Plan Goals The proposed recommendations further the Board-approved County Strategic Plan Goal of Operational Effectiveness/Fiscal Sustainability (Goal 1) by enhancing health-promoting activities in the First Supervisorial District. FISCAL IMPACT/FINANCING Sufficient appropriation for the grant, in the amount of $500,000, is budgeted in the First Supervisorial District¶s portion of Regional Park and Open Space District¶s (RPOSD) Excess Funds Project Fund, HD6. FACTS AND PROVISIONS/LEGAL REQUIREMENTS The 1996 Proposition requires that agencies to which funds were allocated under the Safe Neighborhood Parks Propositions of 1992 and 1996 encumber all such funds prior to receiving grants of Excess Funds. TPL meets this requirement. The 1996 Proposition provides a method for determining each fiscal year the amount of funds available in the following fiscal year to fund capital improvement projects in addition to the amounts specifically identified for projects in the Safe Neighborhood Parks Propositions of 1992 and 1996. The recommended Excess Fund grant will be funded from the Excess Funds available to the First Supervisorial District for Specified projects. The Board may establish additional conditions on grants of Excess Funds. The Acting Director would be authorized to award grants to the various grantees when all applicable conditions have

The Honorable Board of Directors 2/9/2016 Page 3 been met. Any funds allocated by the Board, but not encumbered by award of a grant contract in the same fiscal year, shall be available for allocation by the Board in the following fiscal year. On June 2, 2009, the Board approved the Procedural Guide to govern the administration of RPOSD grants. The Procedural Guide will appropriately govern the administration of the recommended grant as well. ENVIRONMENTAL DOCUMENTATION All public agency projects funded by RPOSD are required to comply with CEQA as a condition of the grant. The lead agency is responsible for preparing the appropriate environmental documentation for the project. RPOSD is the lead agency for the proposed Project. The proposed Project is categorically exempt from the CEQA. The Project, which involves the acquisition of approximately 10 acres in the Silver Lake area for open space and wildlife habitat between Griffith and Elysian Parks, is within certain classes of project that have been determined not to have a significant effect on the environment in that it meets the criteria set forth in Section 15313 of the State CEQA Guidelines and Class 13 of the County's Environmental Document Reporting Procedures and Guidelines, Appendix G, because the Project consists of acquisition of land for wildlife conservation purposes. CONTRACTING PROCESS Grant Project Agreements will be entered into and administered under authority delegated to the Acting Director and pursuant to the Procedural Guide approved by the Board in 2009 only if all applicable conditions of the grants have been met. The Project Agreements will be approved as to form by County Counsel. IMPACT ON CURRENT SERVICES (OR PROJECTS) The recommended actions will have no impact on any other projects funded by RPOSD. The recommended Project will promote healthy activities in public spaces in the First Supervisorial District. CONCLUSION Please instruct the Acting Executive Officer-Clerk of the Board to return one adopted copy of this action to the Chief Executive Office, Capital Programs Division, and one to the Department of Parks and Recreation.
