Libraries, Parks, Rec & Planning: DPR Revenue Generation and Concession Authority
B19-757 would amend the recently enacted Department of Parks and Recreation Revenue Generation Amendment Act of 2011 by clarifying that community groups with authority to fundraise on Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) property may support DPS events and programs, as well as facilities with money raised. It also clarifies that DPR may enter into agreement with sponsors and advertisers to support programs and events as well as facilities; and contracts pursuant to which the District is receiving, rather than spending, money.
B19-758 would authorize DPR to provide concessions and to allow third parties to provide concessions on DPR property through a permitting process or by contract. It would also allow DPR to increase the revenue it collects at sites and create a process by which third parties can provide fee-based programming and events on DPR property.
