In response to the decision to close LSAAP and realign RRAD, the TexAmericas Center was charged with developing a reuse plan for the properties. The TexAmericas Center had successfully redeveloped a portion of RRAD that was declared excess during the 1995 BRAC round. During 2006 and early 2007, the RRRA worked with a consulting team to craft a reuse master plan for over 19,000 acres of property were declared excess to the needs of the Army.
The reuse master plan was created based on a variety of goals for the redevelopment of the site. The development of the reuse master plan considered a variety of internal and external factors. Among the issues considered were the land and buildings available, the availability of utility and infrastructure systems; natural, cultural and historic features; hazardous wastes; transportation facilities; demographic and market conditions; and real estate market conditions. These factors were considered in creating the master reuse plan for the properties. <span style=”font-size: 14px;line-height: 1.5em”>MTG’s GIS, planning, and engineering capabilities brought this reuse plan to fruition in accordance with the 90 day accelerated schedule required by the Army.</span>
