The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association has published the Model Operation and Maintenance Agreement with Commentary. The model helps local governments and private sports leagues or other recreational groups establish partnerships for providing recreational facilities and programming on public lands. It helps them define their respective roles and responsibilities so as to avoid misunderstandings.
The application of the model will vary. One example (as given in the model) could be stated as follows:
The Municipality seeks to expand the recreational opportunities available to the public at the [insert name of park] by partnering with a private party that has the resources to build, operate, and maintain recreational facilities at the Site that result in an overall enhancement of the public benefits provided by the [insert name of park]
