15 Schools and Recreational Section 4(f) School property itself is not a Section 4(f) property For schools, Section 4(f) only applies to recreation areas on the school property that: Are open to the public and are publicly owned; and Serve either organized or substantial walk-on recreational purposes that are determined to be significant Official with Jurisdiction (OWJ) for schools is the Superintendent Need to consult with the OWJ to determine Section 4(f) applicability (see above two bullets)

16 Recreational Section 4(f) Process for Schools For projects that require temporary or permanent ROW from a school property, which are not on or near playgrounds or potential recreation areas (e.g. road frontage maintained as lawn) and will not restrict access to the recreation areas, an OWJ letter is not required. Please complete the two bullets below and discuss as such in the NEPA Document. – Consult with OWJ to confirm that ROW take will not impact areas defined under the term ‘playground’. – Obtain concurrence (via ) from OWJ that the project will not impact property subject to Section 4(f).
