An important component of the RAMP initiative includes outreach activities that will provide customer feedback to make sure that our modernization efforts meet the needs of our customers. The Recreation Facilities Standards Task Force has been tasked with conducting various outreach efforts.
Modernization of facilities is an issue nationwide. Whether it's a problem with accessibility, inadequate RV hook-ups, or an issue with safety, recreation areas need to catch up with the needs of today's society.
Prior to RAMP becoming a national initiative, the Fort Worth District realized that renovation may solve long-existing visitor use management problems. They established their own modernization program utilizing a team approach in planning, funding, and construction. Selected areas at Canyon Lake, Texas within the Little River Project were targeted for the first modernization efforts. The success stories at Comal Park and Potters Creek Recreation Areas illustrate the benefits that may be realized by modernization, and the real proof is in the numbers. The before and after photographs say it all.
