Action
Land Acquisition – El Paso County
Franklin Mountains State Park
March 28, 2013

I. Executive Summary: Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has been offered approximately 658.3 acres as an addition to Franklin Mountains State Park (Park).

II. Discussion: El Paso Public Service Board (PSB) has offered TPWD approximately 600 acres at a bargain sale as an addition to Franklin Mountains State Park. The tract is located on the western side of the Park in a highly desirable area of development for the city of El Paso. This addition would be a buffer from pending new growth and would offer additional recreational opportunities for the public.

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 658.3 acre tract of land as an addition to Franklin Mountains State Park.”
