Commissioners Court - Regular
Grant agreement for CMP Cycle 18 – Hilltop Park
Monica Reyes, Grants Department
Discuss and consider the execution of a Subrecipient Grant Agreement with the Texas General Land Office for the Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 18 project (Hilltop Nature Park Enhancements).
In the summer of 2012, the Coastal Coordination Council of the Texas General Land Office announced they were accepting application proposals for their Coastal Management Program (CMP) grant fund. The CMP focuses on five primary issues of concern to coastal communities: coastal hazards, wetland protection, water quantity and water quality, dune protection, and shoreline access. Specifically, the CMP identifies coastal natural resource areas (CNRAs) and identifies uses or activities that may adversely affect those areas, and sets uniform policies to address those effects.
On September 19, 2012, Commissioners Court approved the submission of an application for Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 18 funding. The proposed project was titled Hilltop Nature Park Enhancements.
The project proposes to remove invasive vegetation and install an erosion control structure. Other activities include creating an ADA-compliant timber boardwalk and install interpretive/educational signage.
The grant award amount from CMP is $60,000. The matching fund requirement is 60%/40%, in-kind or cash match. The County’s 40% match ($40,000) will be in-kind services provided by the Community Services and Inland Parks Department; thus, the entire project totals $100,000.
