Inside Bay Area - Parks hit up private groups

Inside Bay Area - Parks hit up private groups: "Two of San Mateo County's parkland treasures need more than

$11 million in funds for renovation, but the county won't be looking to taxpayers to foot the biggest part of the bill.

As the budget for the Department of Parks continues to wane (it's about $7.5 million this fiscal year), and voters nixed a 1/8-cent sales tax increase for supplemental funding at the polls in November, private, nonprofit entities are becoming an increasingly desirable and necessary source of dollars."
