Brazos River Recreation Master Plan
Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program
Fort Bend Green provides a means to facilitate the planning and development of green space in Fort Bend County, utilizing the entire spectrum of Federal, State, and Local Government. In the summer of 2011, Fort Bend Green hosted a gathering of representatives from local governments and organizations interested in working collaboratively to develop a Recreation Plan for the Brazos River. On behalf of this group of entities, Fort Bend Green requested the assistance of the National Park Service through its Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program (RTCA). In the fall of 2011, RTCA formally accepted the request and began working with the new group of partners to develop a process that would culminate in this plan – the Brazos River Recreation Master Plan.
