COUNTY SUPERVISORS SEEK NEARLY $12 MILLION FROM STATE FOR PARK ENHANCEMENTS
After launching Experience the Outdoors last week to provide better access to regional County parks, Chair Nathan Fletcher voted along with the other Supervisors to apply for nearly $12 million from the California Natural Resources Agency to make upgrades to the County’s Tijuana River Valley Regional Park. The new funding would support a planned $37 million improvement project for Tijuana River Valley Regional Park.
After today’s vote, Chair Fletcher released the following statement:
“Our continued pursuit of new funding and planned investments to improve County parks ensures families have beautiful, safe spaces to enjoy the outdoors,” said Chair Fletcher. “The Tijuana River Valley Regional Park will be an even better place for people to go with these funds. I am hopeful the State of California will be supportive of our vision for our parks in San Diego County.”
Under the Experience the Outdoors program, the Tijuana River Valley Regional Park is scheduled to be featured as part of the Parks 101 First-timer Series for camping this October and next June for a gardening demo. It will also be featured in the Rad Regional Parks event series next year.
