(This amendment provides funding and staff to open two new state parks. The land for these parks has been acquired by DCR and the General Assembly has previously provided funding for capital construction. Out of this amount, $600,000 and five FTE positions are for Powhatan State Park, which is currently under development and will be ready to open in the second quarter of FY 2012. High Bridge State Park is ready to open as soon as staffing is available. Much of the former railroad bed that makes up the park has already been converted to a hiking trail and is already available for public access, but with out any management or maintenance support.)
