Reforestation Program – Oyster Creek Greenbelt & The Nature Preserve Initiative

In November 2016, the Parks Committee and the Board of Directors approved a new program that allows residents living adjacent to the Oyster Creek Greenbelt and the Nature Preserve a mechanism to install new trees in these District common areas. At the request of the residents living adjacent to these areas and the recreational users of these common areas, the Parks Committee developed a program whereas residents can pay for the purchase and installation of a native tree in a location mutually agreeable to the resident and the District.

The purpose of the Reforestation Program is:

  • To provide individual residents the opportunity to install a tree behind their home
  • To promote the installation of new native trees along the greenbelt to ensure a native population of varying maturity
  • To educate the community regarding the positive environmental impacts of reforestation
  • To preserve property values
  • To enhance the quality of life for recreational users of the OCG and the Nature Preserve
  • To maintain or enhance wildlife habitat
  • To sequester carbon dioxide

The program’s success will be monitored and it may be expanded in the future. To review the Reforestation Program in its entirety you may follow this link to the District’s website:

Community Improvements Under Consideration – Your Feedback Requested

The Board of Directors (the Board) of Fort Bend Municipal Utility District No. 146 (the District) is considering its draft budget for fiscal year 2017, which will run from January 1, 2017-December 31, 2017. The District annually prepares a list of potential improvement projects to enhance our community. These projects have been identified by Board members, District residents, the Long Meadow Farms Homeowners Association, District consultants, and others.

The types of projects under consideration at this time include: the replacement of wood fencing with brick, the addition of walking trails and site furnishings at various locations, landscape screening of the wastewater treatment plant and expansion of playground facilities. These projects are under consideration, but the Board makes no assurances regarding whether any or all of these projects will be completed and, if they are, the timing for when they will get underway. One of the biggest factors affecting the initiation of these projects is the availability of funds; the projects under consideration total in excess of $2,000,000.00. At this time, the Board plans to consider these and other community improvement projects based solely upon funds available on hand each year.

The Board requests your feedback regarding these projects and other District improvement projects you would like to see implemented. Please click on the following link to submit your questions and comments: http://www.fbmud146.org/contact/
