Important Information

• Maps must be to scale, or show actual dimensions;  show all existing facilities, easements, utilities, and new facilities proposed in application; should be color-coded for ease of understanding; will be reviewed by the Oregon Outdoor Recreation Committee (OORC) prior to your schedule presentation. The project boundary map must clearly delineate the park boundary, which is subject to the conversion provisions of Section 6(f)(3) of the LWCF Act.




                                                                                                           Century Park

• Overhead utility lines constitute a major detraction from the natural quality of outdoor recreation areas and must be eliminated where possible. Reasonable steps must be taken to ensure the burial, screening or relocation of overhead lines, where lines visibly intrude on the site’s character. All new electrical wires under 15KV, and telephone wires, must be placed underground. If existing lines cannot be removed, rerouted, or buried, please explain in the program narrative and environmental assessment.

• All project sponsors will be assessed an administrative fee for an approved project.

• Within one year after project approval, project sponsor must have contracts awarded and/or have completed at least 25 percent of the project.

• No project may begin without authorization from OPRD through a signed State/Local Agreement.

• Projects that do not receive funding may be revised and submitted in another grant cycle.

• Project areas and facilities must remain open for public outdoor recreation use in perpetuity. Areas and facilities funded with LWCF assistance in the past must be in compliance with the LWCF program guidelines. LWCF acknowledgement signs must be posted on the site.

• LWCF acknowledgement signs are available upon request.
