Talley Landscape Architects, Inc. was selected for the preparation of a district wide park plan to serve as the basis for a park bond approval process for FB MUD No. 50.
The plans include a comprehensive trail system linking all segments of the District, identification of future recreational amenities as well as community and regional multi-use detention facilities. Cost estimates were provided along with prioritization criteria. The District adopted the plan with a budget of approximately $30 Million to be implemented over a 10 to 20-year period.
New Commercial Development adjacent to the Grand Parkway (Texas 99) has created value as well as destination opportunities for the proposed trail connectivity. The plan was influential in advancing the development of several of these projects by showing linkage of all communities to the commercial zone in the center of the District.
Subsequently, we were engaged to complete design through construction documents of the first phase of the District’s masterplan for the West Park Lakes community. The project will demonstrate amenities and standards planned throughout the District.
The scope of work includes a gazebo and waterfall area, fishing piers, perimeter trail system, planting and irrigation system drawing from the multi-use detention basins that also serve as an amenity lakes. The design will enhance the overall quality of life in this community providing adequate protection from storm water runoff along with beautiful amenity lakes functioning as additional park land.
