Notice of Public Meeting

The Texas Motorized Trails Coalition (TMTC) has been awarded a Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) grant from the Recreational Trails Fund to acquire property and to develop a public recreation area in Crockett County. This proposed public recreation area will include trails to ride off-road recreational vehicles, specifically all-terrain vehicles, off-road motorcycles and full sized four wheel drive vehicles. The park plan also includes non-motorized recreational areas which will be available for Crockett County residents and youth groups.

The property was acquired in August, 2006. The TPWD and the TMTC have drafted a park development and operations plan which contains detailed procedures related to how the park will be developed and operated. Parks and Wildlife invites all interested citizens to attend a public meeting on Monday evening September 17, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Crockett County Civic Center in Ozona. The meeting will include a short overview of the proposed project, the funding source, question and answer period and public input.

For individuals who would like to submit comments on the proposed project, but can not attend the meeting, written comments may be sent directly to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department at the address below.
