(a)The California Exposition and State Fair Board of Directors shall preserve, for public day use and enjoyment, the California Exposition flood plain in a manner consistent with the definition of a state park in accordance with Section 5019.53 and consistent with the American River Parkway Plan, an element of the Sacramento County General Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parking of public and private vehicles may be permitted during the State Fair and only on the flood plain land abutting the riverside toe of the levee as it exists on January 1, 1977, on approximately 11 unsurfaced acres beginning at least 400 feet east of the Bushy Lake area and extending not more than 1,500 feet along the toe of such levee eastward of the Bushy Lake area and extending not more than a distance of 300 feet riverward from such levee.

(b)The California Exposition and State Fair also may utilize the area referenced in subdivision (a) for California Exposition exhibitor parking related to agricultural and equestrian events taking place on the California Exposition land in a livestock pavilion, an equestrian arena, or both, if the livestock pavilion and equestrian arena are sited as they were sited on April 1, 2009. The total number of days that parking may be permitted under this subdivision and subdivision (a) shall not exceed 34 days per year.

(c)In addition to the parking permitted by subdivisions (a) and (b), one acre of the existing unsurfaced 11-acre parking area shall be open to parkway users for public access to include equestrian staging, connection to trails, and a new walk-in boat access point, only if the California Exposition’s exclusive use for parking on the entire 11 unsurfaced acres during the State Fair as authorized in subdivision (a) and for exhibitor parking related to agricultural and equestrian events taking place at the California Exposition livestock pavilion and equestrian arena, as authorized by subdivision (b), is not impeded.

(d)The coordination and management of public parkway user access and parking and the California Exposition’s periodic exclusive use of the unsurfaced 11-acre area for a period that shall not exceed 34 days per year, as specified in subdivisions (b) and (c), shall be addressed in a management agreement between the American River Parkway Manager and the California Exposition and State Fair. The management agreement shall be consistent with this section.
