Action
Land Acquisition – Limestone County
Fort Parker State Park
May 21, 2015

I.             Executive Summary:  Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (Foundation) has acquired a 2.3 acre tract at Fort Parker State Park.
II.          Discussion: The Foundation has acquired a 2.3 acre tract along Park Road 28 within the interior of Fort Parker State Park. Acquisition of the tract protected it from residential development, and the heavily wooded property has good recreational potential for the Park. The Foundation has offered to sell this tract to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as an addition to Fort Parker State Park.

III.    Recommendation:  The staff recommends the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:

“The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission authorizes the Executive Director to take all necessary steps to acquire a 2.3 acre tract of land in Limestone County as an addition to Fort Parker State Park.”
