AN ORDINANCE approving the grant funding allocation for projects funded through the 2020-2025 parks, recreation, trails and open space levy grant program in accordance with Ordinance 18890, Motion 15378, Ordinance 19166 and the 2021-2022 Biennial Budget Ordinance, Ordinance 19210, Section 93.

body

STATEMENT OF FACTS:

1.  Ordinance 19166 established grant award criteria and the process for the King County parks, recreation, trails and open space levy grant programs, as well as the proposed composition of advisory committees in accordance with Ordinance 18890, Section 6, Motion 15378, Section F.1., and Attachments A, B, D and E to Motion 15378.

2.  Ordinance 18890, which took effect May 13, 2019, called for a special election to authorize the King County parks, recreation trails and open space levy.  On August 6, 2019, King County voters approved the levy, which included funding for various grant programs, including parks capital and open space and aquatics facilities.

3.  The parks capital and open space grant program under Attachment A to Ordinance 19166 will provide funding for a range of land improvements, including land acquisition, park and open space development, habitat conservation, community gardens and construction of passive and active recreation facilities.  The goal of the program is to acquire lands that might be lost to future development pressures, and also to construct new and improved facilities to address rapid growth in urban areas.

4.  The aquatic facilities grant program under Attachment C to Ordinance 19166 will provide levy proceeds for a wide range of improvements to public aquatics facilities located in King County.  The projects may include feasibility studies, design, permitting and new construction or improvements to existing capital facilities.  The grant program will assist communities as the region grows and existing facilities become obsolete or reach capacity.

5.  The aquatic facilities grant and parks capital and open space grant advisory committee convened in the fall of 2021 to review and score grant proposals and has recommended funding for the projects listed in sections 1 and 2 of this ordinance, based upon the eligibility and additional criteria set forth in Attachments A and C to Ordinance 19166.

6.  These recommendations reflect the first round of what is expected to be a three-round grant cycle over the course of the levy.  The second round of grants is expected to begin in 2022, and the third and final round of grants is expected to begin in 2024.
