This PDF funds development of non-local park projects in conjunction with public agencies or the private sector. It allows M-NCPPC to participate more efficiently in sequence with private developments. Non-local parks are stream valley, conservation, regional, recreational, and special parks. The PDF may fund improvements on park property, school sites, other public sites or private properties. This project supports design, plan review, permitting, construction, construction management, and related activities associated with capital investments that may result from Planning Board approved public-private partnerships.

Cost Change

Cost increase due to the addition of FY19 & FY20 to this ongoing project


2012 Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan. This project provides recreational facilities and infrastructure, e.g. trails, trail underpasses, parking, etc. that are needed. Area master plans; Planning Board approved subdivision and site plans.


In recent years, the Commission has entered into or considered many public-private partnerships. These partnerships contribute to the excellence and diversity of park facilities serving our constituents, but public-private partnerships require related investments by the Commission that are not readily discernible. Legal, procurement, and general administrative costs are appropriately absorbed by the operating budget, but architectural, landscape architectural, engineering, survey, acquisition, construction management, and similar costs associated with the Commission's participation in these public-private partnerships should be programmed in the CIP. Whenever possible, these costs should be programmed in stand-alone PDFs, if such PDFs exist for the project supported by the public-private partnership. In other instances, the above-described costs may be charged to this PDF.


Expenditures will continue indefinitely
