FY 2016 Appropriation

In June of 1998, the division signed a management agreement with the This Is The Place Foundation, under which the Foundation agreed to undertake all phases of operating the This Is The Place park. The division agreed to request $800,000 per year (though the Legislature may appropriate less) as a management fee, and upon appropriation, provide appropriated funds to the Foundation to assist in the maintenance and operation of the park.

This program also manages a contract with the Mountain Trails Foundation, which oversees the maintenance and operation of the Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park.
