-- [ Page 27 ] --

The project supports the TPWD 2005 Land and Water Resources Conservation and Recreation Plan (2005 Plan). Sponsor must specifically address how the project meets the goals of the 2005 Plan in the Project Narrative. Points will be awarded based on evidence in the project proposal of the extent to

which the proposal meets one or more of the following goals of the 2005 plan:

• Goal 1: Improve access to the outdoors.

• Goal 2: Conserve, manage, operate, and promote agency sites for recreational opportunities, biodiversity, and the cultural heritage of Texas.

• Goal 4: Increase participation in hunting, fishing, boating and outdoor recreation.

Additional priority will also be given based on the extent to which the proposed project will stimulate sustainable economic impact, and will lead to the development or support of a conservation constituency (i.e. nature tourism participants thus creating new customers of outdoor, conservationrelated recreation).
