Sec. 3873.205. MUNICIPAL APPROVAL. (a) A district must obtain the approval of the governing body of the city before issuing bonds for a park improvement project and for the plans and specifications of a park improvement project financed by the bond issuance.

(c) The district must obtain approval from the city of the plans and specifications of any park improvement project that involves the use of the rights-of-way of streets, roads, or highways or the use of city land or any easements granted by the city.

(d) The city is not obligated to pay any bonds, notes, or other obligations of the district.
