On Tuesday, June 26, 2012, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a publichearing on the cultural and historical resources within the California state park system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 2040 of the State Capitol in Sacramento. The Little Hoover Commission is reviewing California’s state parks system, thenation’s largest. The state’s 278 parks draw millions of visitors each year, and the staterelies on the system for conservation of important ecosystems as well as forpreservation of important cultural and historic assets. The system has experiencedreduced support from the General Fund, though the system has grown in size. Recentbudget cuts prompted the department to list 70 parks for potential closure, starting adiscussion about new ways to operate struggling parks. The June 26, 2012, hearing will focus on an often overlooked part of the parkssystem: preservation of state historic sites along with millions of artifacts.In all, the state parks system manages 51 historical parks. Proposed parkclosures could lead to the disruption of materials and buildings at these sites.For the June hearing, the Commission has solicited a range of views, includingthose of state parks management, historic preservation experts and those in leadershippositions at trusts and a conservancy. The June hearing will examine the scale and cultural significance of the state’shistorical sites and collections and the potential for alternative governance structuresand new revenue generation. There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. TheCommission also encourages written comments.Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meetingin the Legislative Counsel Conference Room in the lower level of 925 L Street inSacramento.A formal agenda and other documents related to this study can be viewed anddownloaded from the Commission’s Web site at www.lhc.ca.gov.
