Greenway conservancy says state funding needed

The nonprofit conservancy that runs the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway in Boston is resisting the Patrick administration’s request that it become 100 percent privately funded within five years, saying state money is necessary to run the downtown public park network.

Conservancy administrators outlined a budget plan Tuesday that would reduce the state’s funding to $1.2 million by fiscal year 2018, down from the current $2.1 million. But the administrators said private donors have made clear that they are not willing to pick up the entire tab for park operations.
