We are deeply concerned about the proposed closure of Fairfield Lake State Park. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has leased and operated the 1,800-acre park for more than 50 years, investing millions of taxpayer dollars to preserve the area and support its popular recreation spaces, which continue to attract tens of thousands of visitors each year.
In response, Senator Charles Schwertner has filed Senate Bill 1656, which would protect Fairfield Lake State Park and its natural resources from this a planned housing project. The Senator has also identified funding via the TPWD to purchase the park, which will keep the park open without impacting taxpayers.
We believe that it is crucial to protect Fairfield Lake State Park and preserve its natural beauty for future generations of Texans to enjoy.
By signing this petition, you can make your voice heard and help us protect Fairfield Lake State Park. Together, we can make a difference!
Thank you for your support!
