The Special Paragraph


Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the department is authorized to enter into a concession contract for the development, operation, and maintenance of the Crystal Cove Historic District as a public use facility for a period of up to 60 years, upon those terms and conditions that the department determines to be in the best interests of the state.
