Rockwall County Open Space Master Plan

The Open Space Alliance Executive Committee has developed an Open Space Master Plan with the support of the Rockwall County Commissioners Court and the cities within our County. The resulting Plan supplements each city’s planning efforts and identifies opportunities to connect open spaces, preserve natural resources and habitats, protect streams and waterways from pollution, and add economic value to properties.
