Sunset over Sacramento River

Table 21‑1 - Existing County Parks lists existing County-owned parks and shows the total acreage and developed acreage of each park. Fee calculations in this chapter are based on the existing ratio of park acreage to population rather than the adopted level-of-service standards shown above.

Basing impact fee calculations on the existing level of service meets any existing deficiencies relative to the adopted standard, and ensures that impact fees paid by future development do not subsidize the provision of park improvements for the existing community. 

Total acreage and developed acreage of existing parks from Table 21‑1 - Existing County Parks are used to calculate the existing ratios of park acreage to population for each park type, as shown in Table 21‑2 - Existing Level of Service by Park Type below.
