Updating and Enhancing the Texas Public Access Inventory Phase One

Summary

The goal of this project will be to update the Texas Public Access Inventory and enhance the Texas General Land Office (TGLO) Beach and Bay Access Guide (BBAG). The BBAG will be enhanced by providing up to date access data, photos of public access sites and amenities, and embedded into various forms of outreach and communication. The area of work will take place in Nueces, San Patricio, Aransas, Refugio, and Calhoun Counties. Phase one of the project will be used to test field techniques and methods, review and update existing data for the Coastal Bend, and hosting at least two public input meetings to gather further information on access sites in the respective counties. Any new access sites identified will also be ground truthed and added to the inventory. It is the intent that the BBAG will eventually be available through a variety of sources: digital format, Accessing the Texas Coast website interactive map, published book, a phone application, and county or regional brochures
