19-2898.Same; resolution by park boards; contents; approval of county commissioners; engineering report and recommendations. Whenever, any county park board of commissioners certifies by resolution, in writing, to the board of county commissioners of any such county, that the fenced county park and recreational area, then containing over eight (8) miles of park drives, in the county park has been visited, patronized and used by an average of five hundred thousand (500,000) passenger vehicles during each of the past five (5) years and the traffic is increasing to the extent that congestion and traffic hazards develop at the entrances and exits necessarily located on one end of the public park, which by reason of topographical conditions make it impractical to provide additional entrances and exits without excessive cost and that acquisition of additional land to enlarge the park to connect with one or more existing public roads, would greatly convenience and serve persons seeking recreation in such county park, together with other information and recommendations deemed proper and in the public interest by such county park board of commissioners. Thereupon, it shall be the duty of such board of county commissioners to carefully examine said resolution, verify the facts and make findings relating to vehicular traffic congestion and hazards, if any.

In the event such board of county commissioners approve the recommendations of the county park board of commissioners and deem it advisable to remedy vehicular traffic congestion and hazards, if found to exist, it shall be the further duty of such board of county commissioners to appoint one or more competent and experienced park engineers and planners to make a reconnaissance to determine most economical and practical way to correct the traffic problems and whether or not it would be best to enlarge the public park in any direction to connect with one or more existing public roads in the county, build park drives and additional vehicular entrances and exits to the county park and furnish preliminary estimate of cost, less cost of land to enlarge the park, if so recommended by such experienced park engineers and planners.
