8 State Parks 2011 compared to 1979 An increase of 500,000 acres An increase of 1 million visitors Staffing levels the same A decrease of 44% of our budget

9 Budget Reductions Reduced by $33 million $11 million reduction in fiscal year 2011/2012 $22 million reduction in fiscal year 2012/2013

10 Goals of the Closure To protect the most significant natural and cultural resources To maintain public access and revenue generation to the greatest extent possible To protect closed parks so that they remain attractive and usable for potential partners

11 What this means… 70 parks closing to meet reductions 208 parks will remain open 92% of annual park attendance will be retained 94% of existing revenues will be preserved

12 Park Closure Methodology Factors Considered Statewide Significance Annual visitation/public access Fiscal Strength – estimated net savings from closing Ability to physically close Existing partnerships Infrastructure Land use restrictions

13 What does a closed park look like? Limited Staffing (Caretaker status) Closure of Facilities Gates closed or open? Natural Resource Projects Cultural Resources – Collections

14 How long will they be closed? Will depend on the states economy A 3-5 year plan will be developed The parks will remain public land which belongs to the people of California No museum collections will be sold
