At the January 26, 2016 meeting of the Rockwall County Commissioners Court, the commissioners and county judge unanimously approved the Open Space Master Plan submitted by Kevin Shepherd of Verdunity, Inc. representing his team in partnership with WRT Design, Inc.

The Open Space Alliance Executive Committee and member cities are thrilled that this important step was taken and appreciate the confidence and support of our commissioners (David Magness, Lee Gilbert, Cliff Sevier, and Dennis Bailey) and County Judge David Sweet.

Next steps are being determined at this time as to the appropriate funding mechanisms to consider and adopt as well as the organizational structure for our ongoing monthly meetings.  Any decisions made within the next month or two will be provided to you as they become available.

Thank you to everyone for your support and contributions in this process.  We look forward to what this means for Rockwall County, our cities, and citizens!
