The State Parks and Recreation Department shall propose to the State Parks and Recreation Commission additional criteria for the acquisition and development of new historic sites, parks and recreation areas. The criteria shall include but need not be limited to:
(1) Criteria to address opportunities that may be lost to the department if acquisition is delayed, such as Whelan Island in Tillamook County and Cape Sebastian in Curry County;
(2) Criteria to protect significant cultural and historic properties, such as Thompson’s Mills in Linn County, Fort Rock Cave in Lake County, Fort Yamhill in Polk County and Keil House in Marion County; and
(3) Criteria to satisfy the need for overnight and large group use facilities on the perimeter of urban population centers, such as Columbia and Washington Counties.
