Abstract

Public budgets are becoming increasingly strained and manipulated due to economic and political factors. If the ability and/or willingness of government to fund, protect, and manage our open-space continues to deteriorate there will be profound environmental and social consequences. This inability or unwillingness will likely result in decreased protection and access to open-space and parks.
