RECOMMENDATION
Passage of a resolution authorizing the submittal of a grant proposal to the California Integrated Waste Management Board for the Park Playground Accessibility and Recycling Grant Program.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Assembly Bill 18 (Villaraigosa) and Senate Bill 1147 (Keeley) authorized the Safe Neighborhood Parks, Clean Water, Clean Air, and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2000 (Villaraigosa-Keeley Act, Proposition 12 funds). The Villaraigosa-Keeley Act authorized the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) to administer a grant program to upgrade public park playgrounds using recycled-content materials and to assist park districts in meeting state and federal accessibility standards relating to public playgrounds (Public Resource Code (PRC) 5096.310(x)). The CIWMB has been delegated the responsibility for the administration of the program within the State. Applicants may submit one application to refurbish one public playground.

Grant awards will not exceed $50,000 for any one public playground and a fifty (50) percent match must be provided. The CIWMB will allow applicants to use their Proposition 12 Per Capita fund allocation as the required match for this program. The City, as applicant, must also guarantee that a minimum of fifty (50) percent of grants funds will be used for the improvement or replacement of playground equipment or facilities using recycled-content materials. This program is for the refurbishment of existing playgrounds, not for new construction. 

A park playground inspection of City Park performed September 8, 2000 indicated that ADA accessibility and refurbishment of the playground were necessary. The CIWMB Park Playground Accessibility and Recycling Grant Program will assist the City in meeting the state and federal accessibility standards relating to public playgrounds.
