Recently a number of private sector donors have expressed interest in making financial contributions to offset the costs of capital improvements at various County parks and recreational facilities. In return for their substantial contributions, some have requested certain recognition at these facilities. County staff are therefore recommending that the Board of Supervisors adopt formal policies guiding how that recognition should take place.
