Sec. 2501. Congressional findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds that -

(a) the quality of life in urban areas is closely related to

the availability of fully functional park and recreation systems

including land, facilities, and service programs;

(b) residents of cities need close-to-home recreational

opportunities that are adequate to specialized urban demands,

with parks and facilities properly located, developed, and well

maintained;

(c) the greatest recreational deficiencies with respect to

land, facilities, and programs are found in many large cities,

especially at the neighborhood level;

(d) inadequate financing of urban recreation programs due to

fiscal difficulties in many large cities has led to the

deterioration of facilities, nonavailability of recreation

services, and an inability to adapt recreational programs to

changing circumstances; and

(e) there is no existing Federal assistance program which fully

addresses the needs for physical rehabilitation and

revitalization of these park and recreation systems.

CHAPTER 45 - URBAN PARK AND RECREATION RECOVERY PROGRAM

-HEAD-

Sec. 2502. Congressional statement of purpose; complementary

program authorization; terms and conditions

-STATUTE-

The purpose of this chapter is to authorize the Secretary to

establish an urban park and recreation recovery program which would

provide Federal grants to economically hard-pressed communities

specifically for the rehabilitation of critically needed recreation

areas, facilities, and development of improved recreation

programs. This program is intended to complement existing Federal

programs such as the Land and Water Conservation Fund and Community

Development Grant Programs by encouraging and stimulating local

governments to revitalize their park and recreation systems and to

make long-term commitments to continuing maintenance of these

systems. Such assistance shall be subject to such terms and

conditions as the Secretary considers appropriate and in the public

interest to carry out the purposes of this chapter. It is further

the purpose of this chapter to improve recreation facilities and

expand recreation services in urban areas with a high incidence of

crime and to help deter crime through the expansion of recreation

opportunities for at-risk youth. It is the further purpose of this

section (FOOTNOTE 1) to increase the security of urban parks and to

promote collaboration between local agencies involved in parks and

recreation, law enforcement, youth social services, and juvenile

justice system.

(FOOTNOTE 1) So in original. Probably should be ''chapter''.

Sec. 2505. Rehabilitation and innovation grants

-STATUTE-

(a) Authorization; transfer; payments; modification

The Secretary is authorized to provide 70 per centum matching

rehabilitation and innovative grants directly to eligible general

purpose local governments upon his approval of applications

therefor by the chief executives of such governments.

(1) At the discretion of such applicants, and if consistent with

an approved application, rehabilitation and innovation grants may

be transferred in whole or in part to independent special purpose

local governments, private nonprofit agencies or county or regional

park authorities: Provided, That assisted recreation areas and

facilities owned or managed by them offer recreation opportunities

to the general population within the jurisdictional boundaries of

an eligible applicant.

(2) Payments may be made only for those rehabilitation or

innovative projects which have been approved by the Secretary. Such

payments may be made from time to time in keeping with the rate of

progress toward the satisfactory completion of a project, except

that the Secretary may, when appropriate, make advance payments on

approved rehabilitation and innovative projects in an amount not to

exceed 20 per centum of the total project cost.

(3) The Secretary may authorize modification of an approved

project only when a grantee has adequately demonstrated that such

modification is necessary because of circumstances not foreseeable

at the time a project was proposed.

(b) Special considerations

Innovation grants should be closely tied to goals, priorities,

and implementation strategies expressed in local park and

recreation recovery action programs, with particular regard to the

special considerations listed in section 2506(b)(2) of this title.

Sec. 2506. Local commitments to system recovery and maintenance

-STATUTE-

(a) Recovery action programs; preliminary action programs;

five-year recovery action programs; continuing planning process

As a requirement for project approval, local governments applying

for assistance under this chapter shall submit to the Secretary

evidence of their commitments to ongoing planning, rehabilitation,

service, operation, and maintenance programs for their park and

recreation systems. These commitments will be expressed in local

park and recreation recovery action programs which maximize

coordination of all community resources, including other federally

supported urban development and recreation programs. During an

initial interim period to be established by regulations under this

chapter, this requirement may be satisfied by local government

submissions of preliminary action programs which briefly define

objectives, priorities, and implementation strategies for overall

system recovery and maintenance and commit the applicant to a

scheduled program development process. Following this interim

period, all local applicants shall submit to the Secretary, as a

condition of eligibility, a five-year action program for park and

recreation recovery that satisfactorily demonstrate:

(1) systematic identification of recovery objectives,

priorities, and implementation strategies;

(2) adequate planning for rehabilitation of specific recreation

areas and facilities, including projections of the cost of

proposed projects;

(3) capacity and commitment to assure that facilities provided

or improved under this chapter shall thereafter continue to be

adequately maintained, protected, staffed, and supervised;

(4) intention to maintain total local public outlays for park

and recreation purposes at levels at least equal to those in the

year preceding that in which grant assistance is sought beginning

in fiscal year 1980 except in any case where a reduction in park

and recreation outlays is proportionate to a reduction in overall

spending by the applicant; and

(5) the relationship of the park and recreation recovery

program to overall community development and urban revitalization

efforts.

Where appropriate, the Secretary may encourage local governments to

meet action program requirements through a continuing planning

process which includes periodic improvements and updates in action

program submissions to eliminate identified gaps in program

information and policy development.

(b) Recovery action program special considerations

Action programs shall address, but are not limited to the

following considerations:

(1) Rehabilitation of existing recreational sites and

facilities, including general systemwide renovation; special

rehabilitation requirements for recreational sites and facilities

in areas of high population concentration and economic distress;

and restoration of outstanding or unique structures, landscaping,

or similar features in parks of historical or architectural

significance.

(2) Local commitments to innovative and cost-effective programs

and projects at the neighborhood level to augment recovery of

park and recreation systems, including but not limited to

recycling of abandoned schools and other public buildings for

recreational purposes; multiple use of operating educational and

other public buildings; purchase of recreation services on a

contractual basis; use of mobile facilities and recreational,

cultural, and educational programs or other innovative approaches

to improving access for neighborhood residents; integration of

recovery program with federally assisted projects to maximize

recreational opportunities through conversion of abandoned

railroad and highway rights-of-way, waterfront, and other

redevelopment efforts and such other federally assisted projects

as may be appropriate; conversion of recreation use of street

space, derelict land, and other public lands not now designated

for neighborhood recreational use; and use of various forms of

compensated and uncompensated land regulation, tax inducements,

or other means to encourage the private sector to provide

neighborhood park and recreation facilities and programs.

The Secretary shall establish and publish in the Federal Register

requirements for preparation, submission, and updating of local

park and recreation recovery action programs. In order to be

eligible to receive ''at-risk youth recreation grants'' a local

government shall amend its 5-year action program to incorporate the

goal of reducing crime and juvenile delinquency and to provide a

description of the implementation strategies to achieve this goal.

The plan shall also address how the local government is

coordinating its recreation programs with crime prevention efforts

of law enforcement, juvenile corrections, and youth social service

agencies.

(c) Recovery action program grants

The Secretary is authorized to provide up to 50 per centum

matching grants to eligible local applicants for program

development and planning specifically to meet the objectives of

this chapter.
