(1) The legislature recognizes that coordinated funding efforts are needed to maintain, develop, and improve the state's community outdoor athletic fields. Rapid population growth and increased urbanization have caused a decline in suitable outdoor fields for community athletic activities and has resulted in overcrowding and deterioration of existing surfaces. Lack of adequate community outdoor athletic fields directly affects the health and well-being of all citizens of the state, reduces the state's economic viability, and prevents Washington from maintaining and achieving the quality of life that it deserves. Therefore, it is the policy of the state and its agencies to maintain, develop, fund, and improve youth or community athletic facilities, including but not limited to community outdoor athletic fields.
(2) In carrying out this policy, the legislature intends to promote the building of new community outdoor athletic fields, the upgrading of existing community outdoor athletic fields, and the maintenance of existing community outdoor athletic fields across the state of Washington. ((
The purpose of RCW 79A.25.800 through 79A.25.830 is to
create an advisory council to provide information and advice to the
interagency committee for outdoor recreation in the distribution of the
funds in the youth athletic facility grant account established in RCW

Subject to available resources, the interagency committee for outdoor recreation((
, in consultation with the community outdoor
athletic fields advisory council)) may:
(1) Prepare and update a strategic plan for the development, maintenance, and improvement of community outdoor athletic fields in the state. In the preparation of such plan, the interagency committee for outdoor recreation may use available data from federal, state, and local agencies having community outdoor athletic responsibilities, user groups, private sector interests, and the general public. The plan may include, but is not limited to:
(a) An inventory of current community outdoor athletic fields;
(b) A forecast of demand for these fields;
(c) An identification and analysis of actual and potential funding sources; and
(d) Other information the interagency committee for outdoor recreation deems appropriate to carry out the purposes of RCW 79A.25.800 through 79A.25.830;

grant)) account created in RCW 43.99N.060(4);
