"G.  Out of the amounts appropriated for this item, $300,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the City of Roanoke, for distribution to the Virginia Recreational Facilities Authority as follows:  (i) $100,000 for for operations, (ii) $150,000 for capital improvements, and (iii) $50,000 for economic development services."

(This amendment provides $300,000 in the second year from the general fund to the City of Roanoke for use by the Virginia Recreational Facilities Authority, which operates property previously known as "Virginia's Explore Park." This property has been closed for some time following the failure of the park's previous operator. The Virginia Recreational Facilities Authority now reports that it has plans to reopen the park, but requires certain operating funding and capital improvements prior to implementing that plan.)
