Fort Bend County Heritage Unlimited Museum: Recreational Site Plan Project
MetadataShow full item record
Texas Target Communities worked on a recreational site planning project with the people of Fort Bend County Heritage Unlimited Museum and City of Kendleton over the summer of 2016. The museum officials had approached TTC with a 3.6 acre site abutting their museum premises and the Kendleton cemetery. The design and planning was primarily aimed to get a tax exemption for the three acre recreational site, but it also focused on creating a place that resonates with the values of the community and the museum’s efforts in preserving the heritage of the county. Community meetings being a big part of this project, they guided TTC in understanding the project requirements and then deriving a customized design program for this project. The design solution comprised of design elements like a wall of remembrance - to pay homage to the noble souls of this county who served for the United States during war times, a storage facility for the museum, a multi-purpose pavilion - which could also be used by the Kendleton cemetery and for other ceremonial purposes, environmental education workshops and audio history walking tours for the kids in the county, a butterfly garden, a railway dinner and a 3D map-mural of Fort Bend County.
