The mission of the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) is to provide safe and enjoyable recreational and interpretive opportunities for all New York State residents and visitors and to be responsible stewards of our valuable natural, historic and cultural resources.
The Executive Budget recommends $386 million for OPRHP, an increase of nearly $39 million from the 2013-14 budget. This increase results primarily from $92.5 million in 2014-15 New York Works Capital funding, a $45 million increase over 2013-14 levels. This higher level of 2014-15 Capital authority is partially offset by a one-time $7 million retroactive collective bargaining payment that was paid during 2013-14.
The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 1,737 FTEs for OPRHP an increase of 18 FTE’s from 2013-14. The increased staffing level results from increased Federal funding for OPRHP’s historic preservation activities that will fund 4 FTE’s and 14 FTE’s will be provided to implement OPRHP’s expanded capital program.
