County Ordinance No. 107 - Park Use provides rules and regulations on the public use of county park lands. This includes rules for recreational activities, public safety, fair use, and the preservation of natural and cultural resources, among others.
The ordinance was enacted in 1997. Since that time, many changes have occurred in technology and the way that visitors use county parks. New activities, emerging safety and social issues, and other missing topics in the ordinance have created uncertainty for staff tasked with planning and providing park uses. Also, several areas within the ordinance require clarification to allow for proper enforcement.
