TPWD Seeks Public Input on Variety of Resource Issues

AUSTIN, Texas — Gauging stakeholder attitudes and opinions about a variety of proposed changes in hunting and fishing regulations, and related resource issues, is the focus behind a series of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department public hearings continuing across the state during March.

TPWD considers changes to hunting and fishing regulations and related policies each year and entertaining public input about those proposals is a key component in the process. Public comment taken during the open meetings will be considered when agency staff presents final recommendations to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission in early April.

A series of 19 public hearings began March 8 and continues through March 24. The public is encouraged to attend and make comment at any of the following remaining meetings. All hearings start at 7 p.m. Comment may also be made online (http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/) or in writing to TPWD Public Comment, 4200 Smith School Road., Austin, TX 78744.

Following are the remaining hearings and their locations:

Following are just a few of the topics up for discussion during this year’s public hearing process.

A complete list of proposals is available online at the TPWD Web site and at all public hearings.
