SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego County parks department hopes to raise as much as $6 million or more by selling naming rights for park facilities.

U-T San Diego reported Wednesday that supervisors voted 4-1 to approve the plan to sell naming rights of up to 20 years for park trails, fields, community centers and the like.

Prices could run as high at $200,000 for substantially long trails named for two decades.

Park names themselves are not for sale.

Groups, businesses and individuals could purchase the rights. However, nothing promoting a product, alcohol, gambling or a political or religious viewpoint is allowed.

The newspaper says the plan is the result of a more than yearlong study by officials to come up with ways to generate revenues for maintenance and new park development.
