Aransas County Long Term Recovery Plan

This past year, in collaboration with Texas Sea Grant at Texas A&M University, the Aransas County Long Term Recovery Team (LTRT) and all jurisdictions within the County have drafted an Aransas County Long Term Recovery Action Plan and Report. The Report was written to lay out a plan to detail our actions after Hurricane Harvey and to document the challenges we faced along the way in the Long Term Recovery process. The Aransas County Long Term Recovery Action Plan Report’s is available for review.  Click here for the link.  Please note that it is a very large document and will take some time to load.  You do not have to join Dropbox to view.
